Your Christmas refuse and recycling collections

There WILL be collections on Christmas Eve but there WON’T be any collections on Christmas Day or Boxing Day so everything will be picked up two days later than normal for the rest of the week up until Sunday 30 December.

There WILL be collections on New Year’s Eve but there WON’T be any collections on New Year’s Day so everything will be picked up one day later than normal for the rest of the week up until Saturday 5 January.

Please recycle as much as possible so that only your left over Bits and Bobs end up in the bin. Christmas cards and all food waste including your turkey carcass can be recycled, but wrapping paper cannot.

While residents are usually restricted to filling two bin bags each fortnight, each home will be permitted to put out one extra bin bag for their first refuse collection after Christmas Day to help accommodate all of the additional rubbish accumulated over the festive season.

Real Christmas trees can be recycled at the community recycling centres in Tythegston, Brynmenyn and Maesteg. They can also be taken to the Waterton Depot in Bridgend from 2 January onwards.
