Tir John Civic Amenity Site

Recyclage

Vue d'ensemble

Aucu vote pour l'instant.

Recycle the following items here: glass, paper, cans, textiles, shoes, scrap metal, foil, garden waste, rubble, batteries

The average family in Swansea produces one ton of rubbish each year, which is about the same weight as a car. But a lot of it isn't really rubbish at all. It could be used again or recycled to make something new. Over 60% of our dustbin contents could be recycled and put to good use. Recycling cuts down the need for new resources.
A large percentage of your household waste can be recycled. Swansea Council provides a number of recycling sites across Swansea. Use the Kerbside Collection scheme, ie. Your GREEN BAGS, for recycling of paper, glass, and cans, as well as collections for garden waste and kitchen waste.

Further Information
It is important that everyone 'does their bit' to help to reduce the amount of rubbish which is sent to landfill each year.
Here are some practical suggestions.

REDUCE the amount of waste that you produce by;
Buying products with minimal packaging, e.g. loose fruit or vegetables rather than pre-packaged.
Where possible avoid buying disposable items, e.g. biro's, batteries, razors.
Refuse extra packaging where possible e.g. carrier bags.
Consider using reusable nappies - an average baby will use about 5000 disposable nappies. Reusable nappies reduce waste and saves money.
Compost your garden waste.
Reduce the amount of junk mail you receive - Write or register online with the Mailing Preference Service (Call 0845 703 4599) to have your name removed from mailing lists.

REUSE items, this will reduce the need to buy new items and save resources.

I have been trying to find Tir John for 3 days since I found out compost had been moved there from Llansamelt site. I have so far failed to find the place. No one at the other amienity sites can tell me. there is no information online, even this site doesnt have a map or even a real address. I have driven up and down fabian way and surrounding areas and there is not a single roadsign.

I am convinced that it does not, in fact exist. I think Swansea council are just dumping it in the sea. Or perhaps using the rubbish to pad out their road layout schemes.......

Put some signs up!
