Recycling, waste and environment
Community recycling centres
Our three community recycling centres in Brynmenyn, Maesteg and Tythegston have now closed until further notice.
Garden waste collections
The garden waste collection service has temporarily ceased after a composting contractor confirmed it is unable to process local authority garden waste during the outbreak. The service has been temporarily postponed and will be reviewed as the outbreak develops in the hope that it can be restarted. Any resident wishing to receive a full refund in the meantime will be able to do so.
Recycling and waste collections
While recycling and waste collections are going ahead as normal, bulk waste collections, missed collections and deliveries of new bags for non-recyclable refuse and food waste have been temporarily postponed.
Any household currently awaiting a delivery of new refuse bags will be able to use black bags or a similar alternative. To ensure Kier can cope with the impact of the pandemic on staffing levels and continue to provide a county borough-wide service, the two-bag limit currently remains in place.
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.
