Historically, the local authority has always collected very low tonnages of garden waste during the winter months but householders who have garden waste can take it to their nearest Household Waste and Recycling Centre in Aberfan or Dowlais where it will be sent for composting. Last year the authority collected 934 tonnes of garden waste through the kerbside recycling scheme.  The authority would like to thank all those who have taken part in the garden waste collection service and those who continue to use the recycling services.  Further information will be communicated to residents in the New Year on when the service will recommence.
