New charges announced for bulky waste collections

Residents will not be pleased to hear that prices for bulky waste collections are to change from 1st May and that free entitlement for those on benefits will be removed.  From that date the cost of collection of up to 2 items will be £12.50 and there will be an additional charge of £12.50 for each additional 2 items.  Residents can only book in a max of 6 items for collection in one slot.

What goes on at PACT meetings?

PACT meetings are an opportunity for the Community to have their say on what matters the most to them in their area. You are helping us paint an accurate picture of what is really happening locally. The problems encountered are discussed and solutions explored. From the issues raised at the meeting and those brought to the meeting by your Neighbourhood Officer we decide on up to three priorities.

What are PACT priorities?

PACT priorities are problems that we try to solve in partnership in a set time. We work with different agencies and come back at the next meeting with the work we all did to try and solve them. Very often it is mixture of Police, Local Authority, private sector, volunteer sectors and the community that solve these problems. They can only be finalised by you.

Our next PACT meeting is 18 May 2015 at Community Centre in Jubilee Gardens, off Maes y Coed Road.

Current priority : Tackling underage drinking or youth annoyance (alcohol related) in Caerphilly Road/Birchgrove area.
