This year's Recycle Week takes place 20th - 26th June. Pembrokeshire County Council is marking the week by attending the opening day of Pembrokeshire Fish Week at Milford Haven Docks.
People attending the event will be able to find out more about the successful food waste scheme that is available to 77% of residents and learn more about the wheeled bin Garden Waste service that will soon be rolled out.
Cabinet Spokesperson for the Environment and Regulatory Services, Cllr Ken Rowlands said: "Recycling isn't just about being green; it's about making the most of valuable resources and saving money".
"Pembrokeshire residents already recycle 45.5% of their waste, but we need to do more. There's no better time to boost your recycling, so why not visit us at Pembrokeshire Fish Week on Saturday June 25th to find out more?"
What is Recycle Week?
Recycle week allows us to think about the waste we produce and how we can reduce the amount we send to landfill.
Pembrokeshire County Council provides plenty of ways in which we can all do our bit to recycle. Every home is served by the kerbside orange bag recycling scheme, huge investment is being made to improve the provision of the six Civic Amenity and Recycling Centres, while we are continuously rolling out our food waste scheme to more households across the county.
As an Authority we face strict recycling targets. Should we fail to meet them, we could face fines costing hundreds of thousands of pounds. This would affect other services the Council provides, which is inexcusable and unnecessary.
The good news is, recycling is easy and by taking a little bit of time to read about it, you'll find out just how simple it is. Waste and Recycling
