Bin collections to take place as normal over the Easter holidays
23 March 2021
Recycling and waste collections will not be affected by the Easter Bank Holiday with collections on both Good Friday and Easter Monday as normal.
Residents are being reminded that they should put their recycling and waste out by 7.30am on their normal collection day ready for the crews to collect as normal.
Commercial recycling and waste collections and green garden waste collections will also continue as normal on both Friday 2 and Monday 5 April.
Nigel Brinn, Powys County Council's Corporate Director for Economy and Environment, said: "During these difficult times, we want to keep things as normal as we can and our intention is to collect all recycling and waste over the Easter weekend. So if your collection day falls on either Good Friday or Easter Monday, please put your bins and containers out for collection as usual.
"We would like to express our considerable gratitude to all the crews who have agreed to work during the bank holiday weekend to make sure the service to our residents is not disrupted."
Any additional 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.
Often the long weekend is a time that many of us tackle the garden or a DIY project, but please remember to keep trips to the Household Waste Recycling Centres to a minimum, as there are likely to be queues with restrictions still in place to keep the public and operatives safe. Please check online for opening times and a full list of covid related restrictions before visiting.
