Pembrokeshire County Council operates a weekly kerbside recycling scheme accepting plastic bottles, cans and aluminium foil, paper and cardboard. Residents are provided with orange bags in which to present their recycling.
Food waste is collected weekly with the council providing a large green food waste bin for the kerbside, a silver food waste caddy for the kitchen, and an annual supply of compostable bags to line the caddy.
The council also offers a fortnightly garden waste collection service from the end of February until the start of December; annual subscriptions cost £48 normally, with a £5 discount for online subscribers.
A bulky household waste collection service is provided on request at a cost of £20 for 10 items or less.
The council has recently changed to fortnightly refuse collections for around 59,600 properties, although properties that don’t receive weekly food and glass collections, such as flats or HMOs, will continue to receive weekly collections for the time being. Glass is collected in a green box on the same day as residual waste collection.
The council currently operates six household waste recycling centres across the county.
