Committed to reducing our environmental impact

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service is working to tackle climate change, resource depletion and pollution issues. We recognise that our operations have an effect on the global and local environment and are committed to minimising adverse environmental impacts within financial, operational and resource constraints.

Towards Zero Waste

Wales consumes the equivalent of three planets worth of resources. We have to start living within our means (Towards Zero Waste gov.wales, PDF) We then need to find new ways of treating the waste that is left over once we have reduced and recycled as much as we can.

Landfill is no longer an option.

In early 2020 we moved to one waste management provider and coupled with increased waste data accuracy, the Service have been recycling, composting and recovering 99% of our waste with only 1% going to landfill.

Net Zero Carbon Status by 2030

In our race to Net Zero Carbon Status by 2030, the Service has set itself targets that align with the Welsh Government route map for decarbonisation across the Welsh public sector.

We can not achieve Net Zero on our own. We will work with our communities, partners, staff and our supply chain to achieve our goals.
