Householders in Penarth will no longer have to try to guess when rubbish will be collected by the Vale of Glamorgan Council after a Bank Holiday.
From now on rubbish collections will always take place on the same regular day of the week – and won’t be postponed for a day – or even two days – because of Bank Holidays as they have been in the past.
The previous system – such as it was – often made it hard for householders to guess when – or sometimes if – collections would take place in the wake of a Bank Holiday.
Now starting from this month – and including the August Bank Holiday – rubbish collections will always be carried out “on the normal collection day” – irrespective of whether that day is a Bank Holiday or not . The council says it hopes that “this will make it easier for householders and limit any inconvenience”.
BLACK BAG RESTRICTIONS
From September 3rd 2018 the new restrictions on the number of black bags that can be left out for collection come into force . From that date a maximum of only TWO black bags can be put out for collection. The new black bag restrictions were first reported by PDN on February 18th 2018 (See https://tinyurl.com/yb9ybpaw )
Also from September 3rd 2018 , black bags which contain recycling can no longer be taken to the Vale Council’s Household Waste Recycling Centres .
