Glyncoch residents collect and sell recycled rubbish

Residents in a south Wales valleys community have started collecting their recyclable rubbish and selling it on.

It is a job that has traditionally been carried out by local authorities but now people at Glyncoch in Pontypridd are carrying out the task themselves.

The money raised from selling the rubbish to recycling firms will go back into the community where people will get to vote on how it is spent.

Rhondda Cynon Taf council is providing a lorry and driver for the service.
