Recycling service

Pembrokeshire County Council (PCC) provides a weekly kerbside-sort collections service for recycling. This means it collects recyclable materials in separate containers.

It collects:

  • food waste every week from a green caddy using caddy liners provided by the Council for free; and 

  • dry recycling every week:

    • from a green box for glass bottles and jars;

    • from a reusable red bag for metal cans, tins, aerosols and foil, plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays, and food and drink cartons (such as Tetra Pak);

    • from a reusable blue bag for cardboard; and

    • from a blue box for paper.

PCC also collects:

  • garden waste every two weeks between March and November, from residents that subscribe to the chargeable service; and

  • non-recyclable waste every three weeks. Residents may put out up to three single-use black sacks every three weeks.

The Council provides a bulky household waste collection service. To find out how much this service costs, or to book a collection, residents should visit the Council’s website.

The Council manages six Waste and Recycling Centres across the county, at Crane Cross, Hermon, Manorowen, Pembroke Dock, St David's, and Winsel. Residents must book an appointment before they visit a site.
