gregxjr commented on The red and purple bag recycling scheme:

Please can you re-introduce the supply of full sized recycling bags (the same size as the grey household waste bags) as the smaller ones do not fit a standard household dustbin and are therefore very inconvenient to use. Also, why do Monmouthshire's recycling abilities differ from those of Powys, bearing in mind that the two councils are neighbours? In Powys you can recycle plastic bags and wrapping, but apparently not in Monmouthshire. As ALL councils are continually in the news with regard to the need to save money, surely sharing facilities (and adopting best practice) could only be beneficial to all.
