Waste infrastructure procurement programme

The Waste Infrastructure Procurement Programme helps develop waste treatment facilities for municipal waste.

We work with local authorities, the Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) and other stakeholders.

Landfill taxes, lack of landfill space and the environmental impact of landfill mean that Wales needs alternatives to landfill. These alternatives include recycling and new waste treatment facilities.  

We provide local authorities with advice and funding to help them procure new waste treatment facilities. We also work with local authorities and other stakeholders to ensure that these facilities are sustainable and good value for money.
