Bin collections will go ahead as normal over the Easter period, Powys County Council has confirmed.

Recently the collections changed some days and problems were also caused by the snow, but it will all be back on track well ahead of the long weekend next week. 

Householders and trade waste customers are being reminded that they should place out their recycling and waste by 7.30am on their collection days normal. 

Cllr Phyl Davies, Cabinet Member for Waste and Recycling, said: “Recycling the extra packaging produced at Easter is important and will help towards achieving the strict recycling targets set by Welsh Government. 

“Cardboard packaging, envelopes and cards can be recycled in your blue paper and card box and hard plastic items and silver foil packaging usually found around Easter eggs can be recycled in your red plastic and cans box.

“We would like to remind households that we do not accept plastic film items including items such as carrier bags, bubble wrap, food bags and cling film so please put this material in with your black wheeled bin or purple sack.”

For further information on items that can or can’t be recycled visit www.powys.gov.uk/recycle or call 01597 827465 / 0845 6027035.
