Ceredigion CC and Powys CC have made a bid to the Welsh Assembly Government for funding to develop waste management facilities.

This is a collaborative effort between the two councils with a potential for other authorities to contribute to an emerging partnership, working for rural Mid Wales. In addition, the council will also wish to engage with known private sector providers within the area who have the capability and the capacity in investing in residual waste management technology.

The Welsh Assembly Government has agreed that the proposals of the Mid Wales Counties should be supported. Now is the opportunity to act jointly to develop further the techniques for handling waste that is not capable of recycling. Very good achievements in recycling have already been made and now is the time for handling the waste left to minimise the need for disposal in landfill.

Ray Quant, Ceredigion CC cabinet member for highways, property and works, said: 'This is an important step to find a sustainable answer for rural authorities in handling waste. We are building on the achievements already made and are looking for further Assembly support to develop techniques in this important area.'
