Many Govilon people young and old, care deeply about the environment.  The Welsh Assembly Government is, rightly, giving a very high priority to the future of our children and reducing our ‘ecological footprint’.  Their new strategy ‘Towards Zero Waste: One Planet’ aims to reduce by drastically reducing waste and recycling.  MCC have done quite well in some respects byt recently took a backward step by deciding to mix up recyclable material in one sack; this means some of it is so contaimated it is useless for recycling or we get much less return for it.  I collaborated with like minded Councillors to ‘Call In’ this decision and although we narrowly lost the vote we do appear to have forced MCC to think again about what they are doing!
