Waste & Recycling Information

In Autumn 2015 BGCBC introduced a new recycling service that will help separate your household recyclable materials further and a three weekly refuse collection, the reasons for these changes are:

  • To encourage every household to make full use of the convenient weekly recycling and food waste collection service.
  • To boost recycling and food waste rates – the Welsh Government expects all Councils to currently be recycling a minimum 52% of all the waste it collects.  By March 2016 this will increase to 58%.
  • To avoid the large financial penalties the Council would face if the national recycling and landfill targets are not hit.
  • To comply with European legislation which states that paper, plastics, metal and glass should be collected separately to increase the quality of the recycling material.
  • And of course, more recycling and less landfill is good for our environment
