Waste Management Plan
We are a member of arc21, a local waste partnership made up of Belfast and five of our neighbouring councils. Arc21 helps the councils bring down the cost of waste treatment and disposal.
Together we have developed a Waste Management Plan for the arc21 area. This plan will ensure each council achieves its relevant statutory duties, recycling targets and provides the facilities needed to manage their waste up to 2020.
