Refuse Collection & Recycling

Recycling & Waste Collection Days

Magor and Undy have moved to a fortnightly refuse collection service for general waste, with red, purple, green food waste and garden waste being collected weekly. 

This change was an initiative aiming to encourage you to recycle more of the waste produced from your household, and the project has been very successful.

Red, Purple and small green food waste bags are available from the Community Council Office at Magor Police Station, Caldicot One Stop Shop

Energy Saving Lightbulbs
These contain small amounts of mercury and are, in effect, a compact fluorescent lamp. They can readily be recycled at the Five Lanes Household Waste Recycling Centre together with the larger fluorescent lamps. Due to their nature they cannot be recycled as part of the kerbside collection scheme.
Aerosol Cans
These are suitable to be put within the purple recycling bags and placed our for collection on your recycling collection day.

All card and cardboard will now be collected with your red and purple bags and recycled back into new cardboard products. Place you large cardboard boxes alongside your recycling bags. Cardboard will no longer be collected with garden waste.

Household batteries can also be recycled at the  Council Office at Magor Police Station during office hours.

Recycle your household batteries: laptop battery, mobile phone battery, 6V, D, C, AA, AAA, 9V, and button batteries (please tape up button cell batteries before placing in the recycling box).

Food Caddies & Blue Boxes
Replacement food boxes can be ordered from the one stop shop (Woodstock Way, Caldicot. Adjacent to Caldicot Library)
