Denbighshire County Council continues to be a sector leader in Wales in terms of recycling and composting and its efforts to manage its carbon emission footprint.
An independent study led by environmental consultants Ricardo shows that Denbighshire is the best county in Wales for recycling and composting and for its carbon emissions per tonne of waste it manages.
Councillor David Smith, Cabinet Lead Member for Environment, said: “These results make very positive reading and demonstrate the commitment in Denbighshire to reducing carbon emissions and increasing its recycling rates.
The results also show Denbighshire to be the highest performing authority in North Wales, the only one to appear in the top five in the table and we are proud of our track record.
“We must pass on our thanks to residents who make a real effort to increase the amount of items they recycle and to reduce the amount sent to landfill”.
