Swansea introduces new recycling bins
Swansea is introducing new recycling bins in the city centre in a bid to encourage people to recycle more.
The council is introducing ‘quad bins’ and ‘duo bins’ over the coming months as part of a campaign to persuade residents to dispose of their recycling materials as thoughtfully when they are out and about as they do at home.
On-street quad bins will have pink and green logos and non-recyclables will have a black logo to echo the pink, green and black bags residents are used to using at home.
In areas of the city where there is insufficient room for the bigger bins, smaller ones will offer the choice between recyclables and non-recyclables.
Cabinet member June Burtonshaw said: “The new bins will mean residents can recycle on the go and help boost recycling rates across the city. The city has been operating the pink week-green week system for two years now and I think most people are used to it and will wonder why they can’t do the same thing when they’re out and about.
“Large amounts of recyclable waste like newspapers, bottles and cans in single bins when people are on the go currently go straight into general litter bins and that’s often the case whether you’re out in Swansea or any other major town or city.”
£50,000 has been set aside for the project and it’s expected that the first set of bins will be introduced later this month. They will be placed in all town centres and in other busy areas throughout Swansea.

Service is really good, had many problems in the past with previous suppliers however since been with Business Waste I have not had any problems what so ever. From the start of the agreement the sales team was really helpful and helped with my requirements. I am in a very tricky location with not much room to store a container however I was provided with many options from the sales rep to accommodate my requirements. Customer Service from the staff is outstanding. Definitely recommend 100%.
Great friendly service and really helpful staff!
