Green Compass, a waste management scheme, has improved the waste management service and reduced Wales’ dependence on landfill. Both help meet the ambition of Environment Strategy, One Wales: One Planet for no additional landfill by 2026.
Eighty waste management companies have been accredited, verifying the diversion of 2,081,566 tonnes of waste. Since 2009, Green Compass firms diverted an additional 148,358 tonnes of waste from landfill – saving more than £17m.
