The new reusable containers are:

  • A red sack for plastic and cans

  • A blue sack for paper and cardboard

  • A blue caddy for glass bottles and jars

The kerbside-sort recycling method is the Welsh Government's preferred method of collectingrecycling from residents' homes.

Residents that are part of the roll out will receive a letter next week to their home (October24th to October 28th) outlining the new service.

The new containers will be delivered from November 7th, with a detailed leaflet explaininghow to use them. Council staff will be working on-street to engage with residents about thescheme to answer any questions they may have.

New purpose-built vehicles will be used in these trials, with separate compartments to storethe different recyclable items, so the recyclable material is separated at source rather thanthrough a secondary sorting process.

Residents that are part of the expanded scheme will have their last collection of green bagsweek commencing 21st November, with the first collection of recycling in their reusable sacksin the week commencing November 28th.

The council will continue to monitor the scheme, as they roll out to different wards in the city, to monitor the size and type of reusable containers used, any changes to the recycling rate in these areas, as well as the level of contamination in the reusable sacks. This data will then be used by the council to improve the scheme, as they continue to roll out the scheme city-wide.
