COUN­CIL­LOR Hy­wel Wil­liams, deputy leader, said: “Since we in­tro­duced new re­cy­cling ar­range­ments 18 months ago our re­cy­cling rate has risen to be­come the sec­ond best in Wales.

“In Wild­mill, the ma­jor­ity of peo­ple want to re­cy­cle and are do­ing the right thing for their com­mu­nity. How­ever, a small mi­nor­ity are spoil­ing it for oth­ers.

“Due to the lay­out of the es­tate it isn’t pos­si­ble to col­lect door to door. In­stead, waste and re­cy­cling is placed in com­mu­nal col­lec­tion points. This is un­avoid­able, but it does cre­ate some is­sues for us as well as for other lo­cal au­thor­i­ties who have large hous­ing es­tates.

“We re­cently in­stalled ex­tra bins and moved some of the com­mu­nal col­lec­tion points. We are work­ing hard to im­prove the sit­u­a­tion. We are do­ing ev­ery­thing we can to raise aware­ness of how easy it is to re­cy­cle.

“With weekly re­cy­cling col­lec­tions, fort­nightly refuse col­lec­tions, book­able bulky waste col­lec­tions and lo­cal re­cy­cling cen­tres, there is no ex­cuse for any­one to fly-tip their waste.”
