The Council continues to see an increase in overall recycling, reuse and composting (food waste) this is a direct result of not only the amazing recycling commitment of residents, but their ability to support the Council as it made changes to improve the services that are available.

The Council’s Streetcare team have worked tirelessly to increase its recycling figures, which has meant making considerable changes to the way in which recycling and waste is collected – the continued increase in recycling figures show residents that these changes have helped the County Borough to be as clean and green as possible, whilst ensuring that the Council avoids large fines from the Welsh Government.

We all want to live in a clean and attractive County Borough that we can be proud of and together we have avoided pouring thousands of tonnes of waste into landfill sites and everyone needs to realise that we all have to play our part to recycle more waste. If you don’t currently recycle, then we need you to get on-board now or you could cost yourself, the Council and your fellow neighbour’s money!

If the Council does not hit the Welsh Government targets, the Council will receive hefty fines which will result in essential frontline services being affected.

All Councils across Wales must recycle 70% of its waste by 2025 or they will face substantial fines!
