Yellow Bag (Nappies)

Nappy collection service

Residents with children in nappies can apply for a supply of heavy duty bags which will be collected fortnightly on the same day as the general waste is collected from the purple lidded bin.

Residents will need to provide proof of residence in Torfaen (such as a utility bill), as well as a copy of the birth certificate for each child being signed up to the scheme.

The bags can be collected from the Civic Centre in Pontypool and the Customer Care Centre in Cwmbran. They can also be collected from the Household Waste Recycling Centre in New Inn on weekends.

Residents can request a nappy collection here.

What day will my bags be collected?

Use our mapping system to find your waste/recycling collection day.

Missed collections

If your nappy bags were not collected we will not return to collect it unless there was:

  • Access issues due to road works, major incidents or adverse weather such as snow
  • A missed assisted collection

The council will not return until your next scheduled collection for any other reason.

This means bags need to be out before 7am on your collection day and placed where your property meets the pavement (or in your designated collection areas).
