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.

Proof of residency

Our recycling centres are paid for by Powys residents. You may be asked to provide proof of residency (such as a recent council tax or utility bill, or a valid driving licence) before being allowed to deposit any material.
