WHAT THE COUCIL SAYS...
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.”
