In response to Cllr Rowlands, the Vale council writes:
‘To confirm shredded paper should go in the black bag. Processors do not recycle it when its put in with comingled recycling.
There are instances where it can be included in with the green waste but that is only at the Household Waste Recycling Centre over Atlantic Trading Estate, Barry. This is because our onsite contractors use a different outlet to our kerbside collected material. We don’t advertise this, as it creates confusion but as long as residents know the difference its fine.’
