Household Waste Recycling Centre Notice

Due to mechanical issues with the compaction equipment at our Brecon, Newtown and Llandrindod Wells Household Waste Recycling Centres, we currently have reduced capacity for certain materials. If busy, staff may have to close some recycling containers/skips early. Residents may be asked to return at another time. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. 

Newtown HWRC may not be able to accept: garden waste, wood/timber, cardboard, soft plastics, and general rubbish.

Llandrindod Wells and Brecon HWRC may not be able to accept: cardboard, hard plastics, bulky items (washing machines/sofas/etc) and general rubbish.

Important notice on Mixed Waste: In order to ensure that we maximise recycling at our Household Waste Recycling Centres the Council operates a 'no mixed waste' policy. This means that residents are required to sort their waste before visiting the sites, removing all recyclable material. Any resident bringing mixed waste to the recycling centres will be asked to sort this on site by site staff.

If you're bringing excess residual waste from a missed kerbside collection, please remember that lots more materials such as plastic film, Tetra Pak style food and beverage containers, and electricals, can be recycled at the HWRCs than through your weekly kerbside recycling collection. These items must also be sorted into the different recycling containers on site and not included in any residual rubbish bags.

Please see individual centres below for further information on what is expected from you before making your way to the centres:
