Villagers Step Up in Bid to Be Zero Waste Community; RESIDENTS OF GLYNCOCH NEAR PONTYPRIDD PLAN TO LEAD THE COUNTRY ON RECYCLING AND OTHER ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES


Apioneering new environmental project is taking place in Rhondda Cynon Taf to turn one of its communities into the first Zero Waste Village in the country.

Glyncoch near Pontypridd will spearhead this innovative and exciting challenge to ensure that 95% of all residents recycle both their dry recyclables and their food waste.

The aim is also to ensure all residents respect their environment, all communal areas and open spaces are well maintained there is no litter on the ground, no fly tipping in the village and all dog owners are signed up to the good owners' guide.

Deputy leader of the council and cabinet member for frontline services, Councillor Anthony Christopher explained: "Rhondda Cynon Taf Council has always been pioneering in its approach to encouraging more people to recycle their waste and therefore rapidly reduce the quantity of rubbish being sent to landfill.

"During the past few years we have launched exciting and inspiring schemes that have kept our Streetcare team at the very forefront of recycling issues throughout Wales. From creating children's cartoons and websites to holding full-scale rock concert competitions and countywide award ceremonies, the profile of our work has never been higher.

"We refuse to rest on our laurels and continually strive to raise the bar as far as recycling is concerned. The decision to turn Glyncoch into a Zero Waste Village is our most ambitious to date but with the support of every resident and business, along with the excellent work of our council staff, we can make this a reality."

The project was launched in partnership with Glyncoch Community First and Glyncoch Green And Friendly Action Group at a special free family fun day that took place at Craig yr Hesg Primary School, Glyncoch, on Saturday, October 24, from 12pm to 3pm.

What's the project about? The project will concentrate on improving the environmental aspects of the village, while providing on-the-ground training for people through the Future Jobs Funding Programme.

The scheme will look at employing 10 staff over any six-month period, therefore over the duration of the project a minimum of 30 people will work on it. These staff will be deployed on a number of environmental themes such as: n environmental awareness raising; n litter picking; n community enforcement wardens; n overgrowth removal; n recycling; n good dog ownership; n non use of plastic bags; It is hoped that potential employees will come from Glyncoch and therefore promote civic pride.

How will it work? This project is aimed at supporting the efforts and improvements already made in Glyncoch and help the area become a Zero Waste Village within 18 months. …
