Recycling, waste and environment
Updated advice on recycling collections
Following the recent disruption caused by snow and ice, Bridgend County Borough Council and Kier have confirmed some temporary changes for how recycling and waste collections will be carried out.
The changes mainly affect households which should have received recycling or waste collections on Monday 25 January and Tuesday 26 January.
All refuse and AHP waste which could not be picked up on Monday and Tuesday will now be collected on Saturday 30 January, while recycling which could not be picked up on Monday and Tuesday will now be collected as part of the next scheduled collection, i.e. Monday 1 February or Tuesday 2 February.
Any household affected by this temporary arrangement which has trouble fitting further materials into their recycling containers can sort and place items out for collection by using open carrier bags or cardboard boxes.
Alternatively, additional waste and recycling can also be taken to the three community recycling centres located at Tythegston, Brynmenyn and Maesteg for disposal.
Covid-19 Coronavirus waste
If someone in the household is showing coronavirus symptoms, tissues and wipes used to clean surfaces, should be double bagged (using plastic bags) and put aside for 72 hours before going into the blue waste bag.
Please DO NOT put any tissues, kitchen roll, toilet paper or wipes in your recycling bags.
