North Wales regional waste plan

Our Waste, Our Challenge logo

This page introduces the North Wales Regional Waste Plan.

Waste affects us all is one of the biggest environmental challenges facing us.

North Wales has historically had a poor record of managing waste sustainably. We have an over reliance on dumping in landfill sites. Some of this waste is a potential resource which can be re-used, recycled, composted or treated to produce energy derived fuel.

The North Wales Regional Waste Plan was adopted in 2003, and is the result of cooperation between local authorities and interest groups including the Welsh Assembly Government.

The Plan provides a sustainable land use planning framework which assists local authorities to allocate sites in their Local Development Plans for new waste management facilities.

The Regional Waste Plan Group has consulted on a review of the Regional Waste Plan, to make sure that it reflects up-to-date technology and legislation.
