Sessions examined ways the Welsh Government might shape and refine the TZW strategy so as to ensure success in meeting its targets including: increasing resource efficiency, the creation of a circular economy by 2050 and contributing towards Wales’ wellbeing goals.
Delegates also considered the interaction between food and plastic waste, strategies for changing public behaviour and attitudes in relation to waste, as well as considering the role the waste sector can play in the generation of renewable heat.
Further sessions focused on Welsh local authorities' performance in waste reduction to date, discussed strategies to build on the success that has been made in this area and how the decline in price of the commodities associated with recyclable materials highlighted the need for local recycling markets and building a circular economy.
In addition, discussion was held on the role of regulation in underpinning the efforts to increase rates of municipal recycling, supporting the development of the circular economy and heard perspectives on extended producer responsibility and its implications for regulation.
