Municipal Sector Plan
The Municipal Sector Plan supports ‘Towards Zero Waste’, the overarching waste strategy for Wales. It does this by detailing outcomes, policies and delivery actions for this sector.
These actions will deliver the sustainable development outcomes identified in:
- the Sustainable Development Scheme ‘One Wales, One Planet’; and
- Towards Zero Waste.
They will also help deliver our commitments and targets set under relevant EU law.
This document should be read alongside:
- the Sustainability Appraisal;
- the Health Impact Assessment (HIA);
- Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA); and
- the evidence base.
Part 1 of the Municipal Sector Plan takes forward four key areas:
- waste prevention;
- preparing for reuse;
- recycling collection service delivery improvements; and
- sustainable treatment and disposal.
There is a separate Action Plan for each area in this document.
Other issues addressed in Part 1 include:
- achieving better value for money; and
- ensuring clearer and better reporting of how and where materials are recycled.
Part 2 of the Municipal Sector Plan will address managing Household Hazardous Wastes (HHW).
