The recycling facility at Commons Road in Pembroke is to be removed after a long period of misuse, Pembrokeshire County Council has confirmed.

The recycling containers are repeatedly contaminated with so much non-recycling material that they need to be treated as residual waste.

It has also become difficult to keep the site in a clean and tidy condition as rubbish is frequently dumped on the ground around the containers.

Following a consultation period between the County Council, Pembroke Town Council and local Members, it has been decided to remove the facility as soon as practically possible.
