One of Welshpool’s most popular recycling sites is to close as part of the town’s major re-development plan.
The recycling facility in the ‘Spar Car Park’ on Church Street has fallen victim to modernization, as the Tesco supermarket development sparks a multi-million pound facelift for the town.The Spar Car Park recycling site has been binned
Powys County Councillor Ken Harris, Board Member for Waste and Sustainability, said: “Due to the re-development of the town centre, the council has had to close the community recycling site in Church Street. However, these facilities are being moved to the existing site in Berriew Street, ensuring Welshpool residents are still able to recycle a large range of material within the town. Of course, residents can also continue to recycle through their weekly kerbside recycling collection.”
Residents can also use the Potters household waste and recycling centre in Severn Road.
Earlier this week, mywelshpool reported how Welshpool had come bottom for recycling in the area during the second quarter of the year. Llanfair came top with 6.1kg of recycled waste per household per collection according to Cae Post who carry out the weekly collections.
