We are working towards the achievement of targets set out at European, National and Regional level for the reduction of the amount of waste being diverted to landfill.

Policies in the Local Development Plan for Carmarthenshire generally build upon the framework provided by EU Directives, National and Regional Guidance and promote a waste hierarchy of reduction, re-use, recovery and disposal to landfill only as a last resort.

Existing waste sites are regularly monitored to assess landfill capacity remaining and to check compliance with planning conditions attached to the operations.
