CWM Environmental operate two state of the art Material Recycling Facilities (MRFs), the first is designed to process and recover materials from kerbside household recycling, and then pass those materials onto manufactures who then make items from the recycled materials . The second facility is designed to process black bags, from household kerbside collections and waste from the commercial sector for use as energy from waste, thus diverting materials from landfill.
The Company manages and operates two transfer stations within Carmarthenshire, located in Trostre and Ammanford. The main purpose of these facilities is to bulk up municipal and commercial waste and recycling, for onwards movement.
Landfill Communities Fund
The Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) – formerly the Landfill Tax Credit Scheme – enables operators to both claim a tax credit and contribute money to enrolled environmental bodies to carry out environmental improvement projects. The maximum credit that landfill site operators may claim against their annual landfill tax liability is 6 per cent.
Over the last 10 years CWM have claimed landfill tax credits, and funds have been awarded to help many local projects and schemes that have strong community, environmental and biodiversity focus.
