Construction of the new Parc y Tywyn is in the early stages with piling complete. The new Parc y Tywyn in Burry Port will provide a Passivhaus and BREEAM Excellent primary school. It is a replacement to the existing Ysgol Gymraeg Parc y Tywyn and will offer 330 pupil places. The £9.678m budget for this scheme is joint funded 50% by Welsh Government, and will see Dawnus deliver;
- A primary school for 330 pupils
- A nursery for 45 pupils
- Facilities accessible to the wider community
- New access to the neighbouring sand facility
The Dawnus team have been working with the Enabling Zero Waste team to look at how to best prevent, reuse and recycle waste on the Parc y Tywyn site.
A site waste compound is already established. It is fenced and well signed, encouraging waste segregation at source. Having the waste compound established at this early stage will make waste segregation the norm throughout the project, making it part of the site ethos.
Similarly, dedicated bins for canteen and office waste disposal have been provided to embed segregation of waste across the whole site from early on. Past EZW projects have highlighted that canteen and office waste disposal can be an issue. Often it is a forgotten waste stream, which ends up being comingled and disposed of in mixed waste skips. CWM Environmental will dispose of food waste and dry recyclates, expecting to recover 100% of the canteen and office waste.
SMARTWaste training has been given as part of the EZW initiative to help Dawnus record and report waste produced.
