Ceredigion County Council operates a weekly co-mingled recycling system. Clear recycling bags provided by the council take paper, cardboard, tins and cans, Tetra Pak cartons, aerosols and plastics.
Food waste is collected weekly and residents are provided with 7-litre internal kitchen caddies for food waste as well as a 23-litre external caddy for use on collection days. 7-litre liners are free and the council sells 23-litre compostable liners at £1.30 for a roll of 25.
A fortnightly garden waste service is provided all year round, with residents being charged £1.20 per bag collected. A bulky household waste service is available at the kerbside collecting furniture and small and large WEEE for a cost of £42 for up to six items, and £42 for each further six items after that. Large outside furniture and household fittings such as doors or bathroom suites can be collected with a minimum fee of £50, with the total amount dependent on items to be collected.
Residual waste is collected from black bin bags or waste bins every fortnight. The council says that all reasonable amounts of waste in black bags will be collected if sufficient effort has been made to recycle as much waste as possible.
