Larger households and coal fire users can apply now for extra waste bags

4 May 2017

Households with six or more residents can apply now for extra waste bags ahead of new limits being placed on the amount of rubbish that can be thrown out by Bridgend County Borough homes.

From Monday 5 June, homes with up to five residents will be restricted to throwing out a maximum of two waste bags per fortnight. Black bags will no longer be used, and homes will be given a roll of new blue branded bags in May ready for the new service starting on Monday 5 June.

Properties with six or seven residents can apply for one additional waste bag each fortnight, while homes containing eight or more people can apply for two extra waste bags per fortnight.

One additional bag will also be provided for homes where ash-producing coal fires provide the main source of heat, while eligible householders will continue to receive an assisted collection service.

To register for the extra dispensations, please call 01656 643643 or email

Homes that use nappies and other absorbent waste products such as stoma bags can also call or email to register for new fortnightly ‘Absorbent Hygiene Products’ collections (not for sanitary waste).

Homes across Bridgend County Borough will soon be receiving information packs describing all of the changes to home recycling which come into effect from Monday 5 June. Residents are also asked to look out for their new collection calendars, which will be included in the packs, as collection days are changing for most homes.

The new recycling containers will then be delivered to all homes, separately from the information packs, before June. Residents will also receive a roll of specially branded waste bags which should be used for their non-recyclable waste.

Full details about all of the changes can be found online at
