This is today's round-up of the latest Coronavirus news on Tuesday 24 November 2020.


Black bag waste options return to two recycling sites

Residents planning a trip to Llansamlet and Clyne recycling sites from 30 November onwards will be able to take black bag waste with them.

Prior to the early lockdown in March this year, visitors to both sites could take black bags of non-recyclable materials but the service was halted when restrictions linked to the coronavirus came into force.

Now Swansea Council has put in place measures to allow residents to safely dispose of non-recyclable waste when they visit at the end of the month.

The latest changes follow the introduction of a new booking system the council launched recently - and means anyone planning a visit to Llansamlet Recycling Centre must book online.

Chalk trails spring up at our parks

Our play and parks teams have joined forces to create new attractions at local parks to encourage youngsters to continue to get out and about for fresh air and exercise.

Permanent 'chalk trails' have been set up in four local parks to add a little zip to daily walks that became a feature of family time out during the Covid-19 lockdown.

The trails which feature wriggly lines, hopscotch and other designs were created to encourage young children to carry on with good walking and play habits they developed when daily visits to the park became a feature of lockdown experience. 

Scores of city parks already have children's play areas but now those at Parc Llewellyn, Parc Williams, The Vetch and Brynmill Park will have permanent 'chalk trails' for younger children to have a go at. More will be rolled out if they are a success.
