Need a new bin?

You will need two containers, a small caddy to keep in your kitchen and a larger caddy to store outside. If you do not have any of these containers, please request one from us today free of charge.

Where does the waste go?

To Bryn Compost, Gelligaer for In-Vessel Composting.

Participation monitoring

From time-to-time the waste management department will undertake participation monitoring on food/garden, recycling and residual waste. We have recently completed a food waste participation monitoring exercise but in the past have monitored recycling to determine which properties are/are not participating. Residual waste may be monitored to ensure additional or inappropriate waste is not being placed out for collection. These campaigns ensure we can target our education, advice and guidance to residents who may require further assistance, with appropriate levels of enforcement if necessary.
