Fly-tipping in Newport is an issue that has pushed us to think outside the box…

We have teamed up with Newport City Council and Fly-Tipping Action for Wales, to test out a new kind of rubbish collection at one of our estates in Bettws.

At one estate in Bettws, Newport City are replacing the current shared Euro bins, with individually numbered bins, allocated to each household. These new bins will be placed on the kerb side on the day of collection.

We are also providing more recycling facilities, to help residents reduce the amount of rubbish they need to put in their household waste bin.

We are aware that there are issues with fly-tipping all across Newport, and particularly around the bins on some of our estates, and we hope that the individual bins will help residents manage their own household waste effectively.

We will be installing CCTV cameras and carrying out inspections to monitor the area, and anyone found to be fly-tipping will be reported to Newport City Council and may be fined.

If these new bins do help to reduce fly tipping in the area, it could be something we roll out across all our communities!

If you see anyone fly-tipping, or you have information that could help us reduce the amount of fly-tipping, you can get in touch with us on 01633 381 111 or drop in to see us at our City Centre office, opposite the bus station.
