Monmouthshire County Council (MCC) provides a weekly multi-stream recycling collections service to its residents.
- food waste every week, from a blue bin using caddy liners provided by the Council for free. The Council also provides a grey kitchen caddy, and residents can collect extra caddy liners from Community Hubs and Libraries;
- metal cans, tins, aerosols and foil, plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays, and food and drink cartons (such as Tetra Pak) every week, from a reusable purple bag;
- cardboard and paper every week, from a reusable red bag; and
- glass bottles and jars every two weeks, from a green box.
MCC also collects:
- nappies and hygiene waste every two weeks in single-use yellow bags, if residents have registered for this service;
- garden waste every two weeks between March and December, from a green wheelie bin. This service costs £50 per bin; and
- non-recyclable waste every two weeks. Residents may put out up to two black bags every two weeks, ensuring they don’t exceed an 80-litre capacity.
The Council provides a furniture and large household item collections service for large items, such as furniture, beds, household appliances and large WEEE. Collections are managed by Homemakers Community Recycling on behalf of the Council. The service costs £20 for up to three items.
There are three Household Waste Recycling Centres across the county, at Caerwent, Llanfoist and Monmouth.
