Did you get your bin letter?

Bin collection days in the Welshpool area will change for many households next week, the county council has confirmed.

Householders should have received a letter by now informing them of their new collection day which will come into play next week. Many parts of the area will remain unchanged however.

Powys County Council says the new days will streamline their rounds and save huge amounts of cash for the taxpayer.

Only the day of collection may have changed 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 waste and recycling out by 7.30am on their collection day 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.

“A lot of work has been carried out to ensure that our new waste and recycling rounds are as efficient as they could be but this does mean that many households will see a change in their collection day.

“I’d encourage households to read their letter carefully so they know which day to put their bins out. Our guide will also help households recycle as much of their household waste as possible.”
