Grey Bags Get the Sack

You may not have realised that Pembrokeshire County Council is stopping the use of grey bags for the disposing of household waste.

Under great pressure to make budget cuts, the council agreed in March to ask people to go back to using the old black bags – which we will purchase ourselves. We will still be able to expect a maximum of three bags of non-recyclable waste to be taken away every three weeks, and there will be no changes to waste and recycling collections dates.

Introduced in 2019, the grey bags were part of a recycling scheme that saw Pembrokeshire named as the best county in Wales for recycling over the past three years.

The Welsh Government highlights the fact that 48 per cent of items we put out as waste can be recycled, either through kerbside collections or at waste and recycling centres, but the free grey bags will now be a thing of the past in the majority of all of Wales local authority areas.
