Back in September 2019 we declared a Climate and Ecological Emergency.
Since then we have been working on our Decarbonisation Action Plan to set out how we’ll achieve the ambitious target set by Welsh Government.
In order to achieve our goals, we’re concentrating our plan on 4 areas:
- Transport and Mobility
- Land Use
- Procurement (how we get our goods and services)
After the successful trial of an electric refuse vehicle, we are happy to announce that we have now taken delivery of an electric refuse vehicle that will sit alongside our growing fleet of electric vehicles.
Councillor David A Bithell, Deputy Leader and Lead Member for Environment and Transport said: “We all need to look at ways of reducing the impact we have on our environment. “As a council we are no different and are constantly looking at how we can adapt our working practices to reduce our environmental impact. “This new electric refuse vehicle was in fact up-cycled from one of our diesel fuelled waste lorries and demonstrate how a bit of ingenuity and creative thinking can have a positive impact environmentally.”
