Vale of Glamorgan Council Announces Kerbside Collection Changes

 

Vale of Glamorgan council has confirmed changes to its waste services with a move to a source separated recycling system from April 2019.

Following approval at a cabinet meeting the council will also be introducing restrictions on the amount of waste householders can dispose of from September 2018. This will involve a ‘two bags per fortnight’ limit on residual waste.

According to the cabinet report, the current waste and recycling system is “not sustainable”.

The council reports a recycling rate of 65.3% for 2016/17, however there are “concerns” that this may slip back under the required 64%, the authority said.

Resources charity WRAP will be supporting VoGC under their Collaborative Change Programme (CCP) and have helped to develop a mobilisation plan to implement these changes.
