NEVER mind, ‘remember, remember the fifth of November’, this year it’s November 4th that residents mustn’t forget.

November 4 is the big day for waste changes in Pembrokeshire with new recycling sort bags and grey bin bags ready for use.

Residents should have already received their bags, boxes and plastic sacks along with detailed information about what can and can’t be recycled as the county council aims to meet Welsh Government’s target of 70 percent recycling by 2025.

Pembrokeshire currently recycles 61 percent of it’s waste and risks fines if targets are not met.

Collection days may change so a calendar indicating when recycling will be picked up is included in the information to be sent out.

The recycling is picked up weekly and grey bags, one per week, picked up every three weeks.

Out of 64,000 households, 61,000 are moving over to the new regime with some areas, including council estates such as the Mount Estate in Milford Haven, remaining on the old system.

This has caused some anger on social media.

Larger households can apply for more of waste bags and there is separate absorbent hygiene and nappy collection for those that sign-up.

Later in November, there will be an option to purchase stacking boxes if people feel they are more suitable for their households.
