Environment

Castle Cary Town declared a climate emergency in 2019 and this extract from our strategic objectives is how we will strive to achieve it: 
Vision: Castle Cary will become a carbon neutral town by 2030 in alignment with other Councils across the UK. We will aim to achieve this by:
 
• Working in partnership with the new Somerset Council, SCAN and neighbouring Town Councils to promote sustainability values and continue to support Fair Trade principles.
• Support the installation of car charging points and consider providing bike charging points at the Millbrook Hub
• Supporting recycling and the reduction of waste.
• Providing a water distribution point which will reduce the use of plastic bottles.
• Supporting wildflower preservation working with volunteers to support campaigns to
rebalance biodiversity.
• Keeping the Cemetery an environmentally beautiful space for all, with wildflowers and
using eco ways of dealing with vermin.
• Working with the transport group to reduce the impact of travel by suggesting new ways to travel.
• Employing safe working practices with health & safety and environmental protection in mind.
• Investing money ethically where possible.

• Encouraging developers to work with sustainable materials and dispose of materials in an environmentally friendly way. 

Somerset Waste Partnership manages household waste services on behalf of Mendip, Sedgemoor, Somerset West and Taunton Council, South Somerset District Council and Somerset County Council.
