Council blue bin bags set to be rolled out next week
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.
