Coun­cil blue bin bags set to be rolled out next week

Glamorgan Gazette - - Your Views -

BRID­GEND county res­i­dents will start re­ceiv­ing their next roll of blue bin bags from Mon­day, the coun­cil has an­nounced.

De­liv­er­ies of the bags are sched­uled to take place un­til the end of the month, with house­holds be­ing given a sup­ply to last them six months.

Coun­cil­lor Hy­wel Wil­liams, the coun­cil’s deputy leader, said: “This next roll of blue bin bags will take res­i­dents through to March, by which time it will be­come even more sec­ond na­ture to re­cy­cle as much as pos­si­ble, and only throw out the leftover bits and bobs.

“Don’t for­get that the web­sitewww.re­cyc le for­bridge nd. wales con­tains full de­tails on what can and can’t be re­cy­cled.

“In par­tic­u­lar, it’s worth not­ing what plastics and met­als can go in your blue re­cy­cling sack, and which should go in your rub­bish bags in­stead.

“For ex­am­ple, yo­ghurt tubs, plas­tic bot­tles, tin foil, food tins and drink cans can all be re­cy­cled, but crisp pack­ets, choco­late wrap­pers, sweet wrap­pers, plas­tic bags, cling film and black plas­tic are among the ma­te­ri­als that can­not be re­cy­cled.”

The coun­cil’s new re­cy­cling ar­range­ments mean that homes with up to five res­i­dents are lim­ited to putting out a max­i­mum of two rub­bish bags every fort­night, while larger house­holds can re­quest ex­tra bags, which are a darker shade of blue.
