County Council Listens To Nappy Concerns

This article is old - Published: Thursday, Sep 29th, 2016

The Isle of Anglesey County Council can today (Thursday, September 29th) confirm that it will make changes to its new nappy collection service. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Senior Waste Management officers have listened to parents’ concerns and will now ensure that: ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

  • children up to the age of four are eligible to receive the service.
  • parents won’t have to provide a copy of the child’s birth certificate
  • any applications for a child over four years of age will be considered on a case by case basis, as would have
  • happened for children over three previously.

Head of Highways, Waste Management and Property, Dewi Williams, explained, “We’ve listened to the concerns expressed by parents in recent days, and as a result will make changes to the service.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“We’re introducing this additional new nappy collection service in order to help those with young children. From October, general waste (black bins) will only be collected every three weeks. By introducing this new service, we’ll ensure parents do not have to wait more than two weeks to dispose of nappies. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

He added, “Parents are encouraged to apply for the new service but they can still place nappies in the black bin too.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Another service is available for individuals who are unwell or have medical needs, called the Offensive Non-infectious Household Waste Collection. This service is available upon request from the relevant healthcare provider, via a prescribed application form. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
