New Angle for Waste

Angle Peninsula Primary School kicks off the New Year with Enabling Zero waste.

Friday 3rd February 2017

Enabling Zero Waste is under way at Angle Peninsula Primary School Pembrokeshire. A third EZW initiative for WRW, who is the appointed main contractor for the construction of the new school. WRW occupied the site early in October 2016 and anticipates completing the scheme towards the end of 2017.

The EZW team are reviewing possibilities of implementing material take back schemes and waste segregation best practices have been implemented to increase recycling rates and avoid waste sent to landfill. A canteen waste service has been provided on behalf of Pembrokeshire Council, offering a road side collection service for the duration of the project, preventing food and canteen waste from entering mixed waste skips, and helping to increase recycling rates.

WRW has improved their waste performance on each EZW project. A project update and best practices will be reported in due course. 

Enabling Zero Waste is a CEW initiative which aims to establish if and how the industry can achieve the zero waste targets outlined in the Welsh Government’s waste strategy document Towards Zero Waste. We work alongside the industry to identify challenges in achieving the targets and disseminating best practices.
