Powys County Council will be taking on the kerbside recycling from Cae Post who last month announced jobs would be cut after losing the council contract.

It is believed a number of jobs will be transferred from the Trewern-based enterprise to the Council who will take on the responsibility from April for 5,000 houses across north Powys.

Householders will be able to continue to use their black/blue box to recycle paper and card and their red box to recycle cans and plastics but they will be given an aqua box to recycle their clean glass bottles and jars.

The aqua boxes and a leaflet on the change will be delivered to households later next month (March).

Cllr John Powell, Cabinet Member for Waste and Recycling said: “The change is taking place after the council’s contract with Cae Post to collect and process recyclables ends at the end of March.

“We have had a long relationship with Cae Post and we thank them for the contribution they have made to recycling in Powys, they have certainly helped us to achieve our targets over the years.

“Recycling in Powys has improved considerably since we originally started working with Cae Post which means that we are now operating on a much larger scale. I wish Cae Post every success in their future ventures.”
