Bin collection days in the Welshpool area will change for most households next month, the county council has announced.

Powys County Council says it is looking to make its waste and recycling collection rounds more efficient, and the new routes will help them save over £250,000 a year.

The new rounds will start from Monday, February 26, and the council will be writing to all households to inform them of their new collection day.

Only the day of collection is changing with the council continuing to collect recycling and food waste on a weekly basis and non-recyclable waste every three weeks.

Households will still need to put their bins out by 7.30am even if the day doesn’t change, as the time of collection is likely to be different to the previous rounds.

Cllr Phyl Davies, Cabinet Member for Waste and Recycling, said: “Given the numerous service changes that have occurred since the existing rounds were rolled out, they are not as efficient as they could be and it is important that we look where we can to make improvements.

“By using route optimisation software and the experience of our operational teams, we are ensuring that the waste and recycling collection rounds are as efficient as they can be. This does mean that many households will see a change in their collection day.”

He added that the letters informing residents of their new collection day will be dispatched in the next two weeks.
