Changes to the waste and recycling service:
Over the next few weeks, residents living in the Dwyfor area of Gwynedd will receive an information pack through the post explaining the new waste collection service that will be introduced from 20 October onwards.

More information is available in the waste information leaflet.



We encourage everyone to dispose of their waste responsibly to ensure that Gwynedd is a great place to live and visit.
