Protesters chant in protest over new recycling boxes

About 200 people have attended a protest in Blaenau Gwent over the council's new recycling system.

In October "Troliblocs", a stack of three recycling boxes on a wheeled trolley, were sent to residents with black bags collected every three weeks.

Campaigners at Ebbw Vale's Civic Centre said on Friday disabled and elderly people struggle to move the trolleys, especially in houses with steps.

Blaenau Gwent council has been asked to comment.
