These are the containers you’ll be using for your recycling, which will continue to be collected weekly.
Please leave your recycling and waste at the edge of your property by 7am on your collection day so that it can be seen by the crews. Please don’t put it out any earlier than 7pm the night before.
Residents who live in flats with communal bins will continue to recycle their materials in the same way.
Don’t forget that if you regularly recycle more than you can fit in your containers, please call 01656 643643 or email email@example.com to request more for free.

Research by recycling experts WRAP Cymru into the contents of an average landfill bag in Bridgend County Borough last year found that at least half of the waste being thrown out could have been recycled, and that most of it was leftover food.
To recycle food waste, simply empty it into the small brown caddy which should be lined with a green compostable bag. When bags are full, tie them up and place them in the larger brown caddy ready for collection.
Don’t forget to recycle leftovers or uneaten food that may be lurking at the back of your fridge. Just remove any packaging first, and recycle that too if possible!
