Cae Post, the local environmental charity and social enterprise, is to lay off 17 employees, MyWelshpool can reveal.

The sad news was confirmed following the loss of a Powys County Council recycling contract with the 17 employees being told to find new work from April 1.

Following our enquiry, Cae Post’s General Manager Sue Parker issued the following statement:

“As a result of Powys County Council not renewing our contract to collect recycling from 5,000 homes in north Powys, collect from the bringsites and operate the materials recovery facility in Trewern, we have issued redundancy notices to 17 employees affected by the reduction in work.

“When our contract ends on March 31, employees directly involved in the kerbside collections will transfer to Powys County Council under TUPE Regulations.

“We recognise that this is a difficult period for all concerned and we are working with agencies such as The Shaw Trust, Citizens Advice and Careers Wales to offer support and guidance to those affected.

“We also operate successful recycling and waste collection services to a number of organisations such as schools and private businesses in Powys and beyond and we are continuing to offer this service and hope that we might be able to employ more people in the near future as we gain new customers.

“Indeed, if any local business or organisation would be interested in working with us, I’d really like to talk to them to see how we can help them and they can help us.

“We would like to say ‘thanks’ to all householders from whom we have collected since 2006 and, as a charity and social business, Cae Post will continue to seek opportunities to support local people who find it difficult to access the jobs market.”
