Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire's waste to be exported

Non-recyclable waste collected from homes and businesses in Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire is to be sent overseas.

Ceredigion council said the move will save both authorities £350,000 a year and create 11 jobs on Pembroke Dock.

The rubbish will be exported to Sweden where it will be used at a power station to generate heat and electricity.

It will be processed at sites at Pembroke Port and Lampeter to remove recyclables before being shipped.
