New Recycling Service Launched in Merthyr Tydfil


The Welsh Government’s Natural Resources Minister, Carl Sargeant, today launched a new recycling service for Merthyr Tydfil Council, implemented with the help of a £2-million investment from the Welsh Government.

The funding has helped the local authority invest in new collection vehicles, containers, depots and equipment in order to move from a co-mingled recycling service to a kerbside-sort system.

Launching the new service this morning (17 September) Sargeant said he hoped that implementing the changes would help Merthyr Tydfil exceed the statutory recycling targets in the coming years.
