Newport council cardboard bags 'to be weather protected'

South Wales Argus: Newport council cardboard bags 'to be weather protected' Newport council cardboard bags 'to be weather protected'

NEWPORT council has clarified that new bags being introduced in the city for cardboard collections will have weather protection as they announce Christmas recycling dates.

A spokeswoman for the authority said the bags being introduced are made of a polypropylene material similar to bags in some large furniture stores, and will have a lid for weather protection.

Residents in the first phase of the scheme will have received letters informing them of the changes – they will receive the bags early next year.

In the mean time cardboard can still be placed in the orange-lidded garden waste bins over the festive period.

Refuse and recycling collections for Christmas Day will be moved to December 27 while collections for Boxing Day will move to December 28.

Collections due for December 27 will be held on December 29, while those due on January 1, January 2 and January 3 will take place the day after.

Collections due to take place on December 24 and December 31 are unchanged.

i know its a pain to sort your waste, it was much easier when we could chuck it in one big bag and forget about it.

but chucking it in one big bag and sending it to the dump is costly.

btw, if you do chuck your partner out, i'd suggest the compost pile would be best!

It is actually cheaper and better to sort it centrally

How an earth do you fit large cardboard boxes in a small bag. It is just daft

They are talking about trying to save every bit of money they can due to all these cuts they are getting, yet they can afford to waste money on new bags?? or are they going to make us pay for them??

I think anything recyclable should go in the orange bin and sorted centrally, maybe grass cutting and hedge cuttings in the green bin to help break down that huge mound of a tip? just a bit of common sense and easy to use method we need! not added on brainless ideas!!!

It actually not cheaper to sort it centrally. There are lots of comparitive studies that are quite easy to access. Card mixed with garden waste cost £20 per tone to recycling. Card collected separately is worth £80 per tonne. So you are £100 per tonne better off

Actually your logic is back to front, its the biodegradable waste that is banned from the tip and if it goes there it causes GHG emissions. Its the "breaking down" that is the problem. Its slightly amusing that mike464 is accusing the council of being brainless when he dosent understand basic environmental chemistry.

You cans sort the recycling centrally as its too expensive and no use for reprocessors once it has been crushed together.

becuase disposal of waste costs £200 per tone fine plus £85 landfill or incineration cost. Card collected with garden waste costs £20 per tone and card collected separatly is worth £80 per tonne. As such the saving will reduce some of the upward pressure on council tax
