Waste Collections

Two Minute Street Clean

The aim of the #2minutestreetclean scheme is to make it as easy as possible for people to help maintain and improve the cleanliness of Pembrokeshire while having a positive and rewarding impact on our environment.

Each station holds litter pickers and used carrier bags to equip people to carry out a litter pick when they visit. The litter collected can then be put into the nearest litter or recycling bin. 

Every piece of litter removed from our streets matters, it does not matter if you pick up 1 or 2 items or a whole bagful – it all helps. 

This map shows the location of the street boards, please note that the boards are hosted by volunteers so there may be occasions when the boards are not put out, also some are seasonal only. 

For more information or to be involved in #2minutestreetclean please contact Jemma Price-Lewis on 01437 764551 or email jemma.price-lewis@pembrokeshire.gov.uk

Bulky Household Collections

Bulky Household Collections

If you have unwanted large household appliances such as beds, fridges and furniture you can arrange for a bulky household waste collection or consider donating them.
Donate where possible
If your items are of a good enough quality you may want to consider donating them to family, friends, neighbours or a local charity/community group instead.  Free of charge options are available by clicking on this  - This link is temporarily unavailable.

The collection of bulky household items is undertaken on our behalf by Frame, a local charitable organisation.

Requests for this service can be made by completing a Bulky Household Waste Collection Form via 'My Account' your online Council account.

When requesting this service, please state the items to be collected, as only specified items will be removed.

The service you can expect is:

  • The charge for a collection of household items is £20 for 10 items or less.  Please note a 3-piece suite would be classed as 3 items, whereas a table and 4 chairs would be classed as 5 items.
  • Household clearances and garden clear ups are not classed under the terms of this bulky household waste collection scheme. In such cases, an officer can visit the household and provide a separate price for the collection of these items. Actual collection will take place within 10 days of receipt of request.
  • It may be possible to collect goods from inside the property if the owner is present. This is subject to sufficient access. Please make this request clear at the time of booking.

Food Waste Collections

Five reasons to recycle your food waste

1) It's easy

2) Contains food smells

3) Caddies lock to stop pests getting access

4) It's collected once a week

5) Turned into electricity


What can I put in my caddy? 

You can put any raw or cooked food in your caddy. You can even scrape uneaten food straight into your caddy.

  • Meat and fish - raw and cooked including bones
  • All dairy products such as eggs and cheese
  • Vegetables and fruit - raw and cooked
  • Bread, cakes and pastries
  • Rice, pasta and beans
  • Uneaten food from your plates and dishes
  • Tea bags and coffee grounds

No Thanks!  Please do not put any of these materials in your food waste caddy.

  • Packaging of any sort
  • Plastic bags
  • Liquids
  • Oil or liquid fat

Please remember - If you already compost at home please keep composting your uncooked vegetable and fruit peelings in your bin or heap.

 

How can I recycle my food waste?

To recycle your food waste all you need is:

  • A large green 23 ltr food waste bin 
  • A silver 5 ltr food waste caddy 
  • An annual supply of bags to line the caddy

Step 1

Get the right equipment – you will need a kitchen caddy, caddy bags
and a kerbside bin.

Step 2

Line your Kitchen Caddy with the bag

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3

Place any food waste into the caddy, taking care to exclude any packaging.

 

Step 4

When your kitchen caddy is full, empty into your kerbside bin and put out for collection once a
week so it can be recycled.

Kerbside Glass Collections

What can I put in the box?

Empty glass bottles and jars of all colours, shapes and sizes. There is no need to remove labels, lids, corks or bottle tops.

What can't put in the box?

Any type of glass that is not a bottle or jar i.e pyrex containers, drinking glasses, spectacles, window glass, glass ornaments, glass chopping boards or light bulbs

Why can't these items be included?

These items melt at a different temperature to glass bottles and jars. If they get mixed up and collected, they will contaminate the load making it useless and unable to be recycled. 

How can I dispose of the items that can't go in my box, without them being sent to landfill?

They can be taken to your closest Civic Amenity and Recycling Centre and disposed of in special containers. Alternatively, most of these items can be donated to your local charity shop providing they are in good condition and spectacles can be taken into most opticians.

Where can I keep my box?

The drain holes in the box are raised to retain liquid and prevent soiling to floors, should you keep your box indoors. However if you keep your box outside the holes will allow the controlled release of rainwater.  

Please only put the items listed in your box for collection. If the wrong items are collected and mixed into the load it will not be able to be recycled. Any items that are not suitable for kerbside collection will be left in the box for you to re-sort and dispose of correctly.

What will happen to the collected glass?

The glass will be delivered to Swansea and go for closed loop recycling.  Closed loop recycling means the glass will be recycled back into glass bottles and jars which is the most sustainable way of recycling.

Top tips for recycling your glass

  • Use your glass recycling box on a fortnightly basis. Overfilling the box makes it heavier and more difficult to handle.
  • Please empty and rinse the bottles and jars to remove any residue
  • Place the bottles and jars loose inside the box
  • Please do not fill your glass recycling box above the rim. Overfilling the box increases the chances of breakages and injury
  • There is no need to remove labels, lids, corks or bottle tops
  • There is no need to separate your glass according to colour

Fascinating facts and figures

  • On average each family in the UK uses 330 glass bottles and jars a year (British Glass).
  • Glass bottles and jars are 100% recyclable and can be used again and again.
  • Glass that is thrown away and sent to landfill will never decompose.
  • Glass dating over 3,000 years old has been found in the Middle East.
  • Using recycled glass in a furnace uses less energy than making new glass from scratch.
  • Recycling two bottles saves enough energy to boil water for five cups of tea.
  • In Britain we use over six billion glass bottles and jars each year. It would take you over three and a half thousand years to sing "Six Billion Green Bottles"! (Waste Watch).

We are looking into the best way to collect glass from large blocks of flats and properties with no accessible kerbside.
