Homes with up to five residents are restricted to throwing out a maximum of two blue bin bags per fortnight.
Properties with six or seven residents can apply for one additional waste bag each fortnight, while homes containing eight or more people are able to apply for two extra waste bags per fortnight.
One additional bag can be provided for homes where ash-producing coal fires provide the primary source of heat, while eligible householders can apply for an assisted collection service.
If you recycle as much as you can, only the leftover bits and bobs should fill your blue waste bags. You can get recycling tips from Bridgend County Borough’s newest double act ‘Bits and Bobs’ by following us on Twitter and using the hashtag #BitsNBobsBCBC, or by liking our Facebook page.
