A Welshpool Town Councillor has called on residents to turn out in force for Tuesday night’s public meeting to discuss the potential closure of the town’s recycling site.

Graham Breeze, chairman of the council’s Service & Property Committee, wants people from the Welshpool area to pack out the Town Hall for the meeting which will be attended by Powys County Council cabinet members.

Powys County Council is considering cutting the number of sites it finds across the county to save money, but it has caused grave concern for local residents, fearing that closure of the sites will increase fly tipping.

“Welshpool Town Council is hosting a meeting on Tuesday at 7pm regarding the possible closure of recycling centres across Montgomeryshire,” said Councillor Breeze.

“The meeting is open for anyone to attend and this is a chance for us all to tell Powys County Council that the proposals to cut the service anywhere in North Powys are totally unacceptable.

We all know that the outcome of such actions will be a massive increase in fly-tipping.

“Let’s turn out in force and tell Powys County Council to go back to the drawing board.”

Residents are angry that earlier cuts to the collection services have already caused headaches. Collection of non-recyclable rubbish now takes place only every three weeks.
