Trade waste and recycling currently collected by Cae Post will soon be carried out by Powys County Council, it has been confirmed.

The council’s Trade Waste and Recycling Team will start collecting from Cae Post’s existing customers after the company announced it was to stop its trade waste and recycling collections at the end of the month, with the loss of 10 jobs.

Cae Post has contacted their customers to inform them that the council will start collecting their trade waste and recycling from the beginning of February.

Cllr Phyl Davies, the council’s Cabinet Member for Waste and Recycling, said: “I would like to reassure businesses that currently use Cae Post that they will continue to receive a trade waste and recycling service.

“We will work with Cae Post over the coming weeks to ensure that the transfer of services to the council is seamless as possible.

“We will be contacting Cae Post’s existing customers to inform them of the new arrangements. We will make sure that those customers impacted by the changes receive a prompt and professional trade waste and recycling collection service from Powys County Council.”

Last month, John Harrington, chair of the Cae Post’s trustees, told us: “It has been an extremely difficult year for us. Although we have been able to grow our services to trade customers in Powys and Shropshire, we have seen the value and demand for the recyclable materials we sort and bale fall. This has led us to a very difficult decision.

“As a board of trustees, it was very hard for us to decide to close our recycling centre in Trewern, but financially we had no choice. We hope to be able to continue to meet our charitable objectives of offering training and employment to those disadvantaged in the jobs market in some other way in future.”
