Committee details

Prosiect Gwyrdd Joint Committee

Purpose of committee

ProsiectGwyrdd is a partnership between Caerphilly Borough County Council, The County Council of the City and County of Cardiff, Monmouthshire County Council, Newport Council and Vale of Glamorgan Council with the joint committee being made up of 2 Cabinet or Executive Members from each authority. The combined municipal waste of the five authorities makes up 40% of the total municipal waste of Wales. Prosiect Gwyrdd is committed to looking for the best environmental, cost effective and practical solution for waste after recycling and composting has been maximised in each area.


All authorities are committed to recycling and composting and meeting the challenging targets ahead of us. The Welsh Assembly Government has outlined a 70% recycling and composting rate by 2025, and each authority is striving to meet this target.


Joint Committee meetings are public meetings and the public are welcome to attend. Public involvement will operate under the Committees’ agreed rules of engagement to ensure that commercial information is secure at all times.


Cardiff Council is the designated secretariat for the joint Committee and as so is responsible for the publishing of agendas, reports and minutes for the meetings. 


There is also an information website, Prosiect Gwyrdd, administered by Caerphilly County Borough Council.
