Beyond Recycling – No More Incinerators

The Welsh Government has published its final Beyond Recycling strategy to make the circular economy a reality where we keep resources in use and avoid waste. To quote an enthusiastic Friends of the Earth Cymru ‘the final strategy is even better than its consultation.  The government still has a zero waste target of 2050. But the measures in this strategy will, hopefully, get us to that point long before then. This is a crucial development.  And now for the incredible news. The Welsh Government has announced no more new incinerators! This is a game-changer for Wales. It really is a massive win.’
