Community Recycling Centres

Under the new recycling and waste procedures, the county borough’s current civic amenity sites will become Community Recycling Centres. This page offers more information on what householders can expect when they open on Monday 5 June 2017.

What will the opening times of the Community Recycling centres be?

The current site will close on Sunday 4 June 2017 and will re-open as the new Community Recycling Centre on Monday 5 June 2017.

Opening times will be 8am-8pm Monday to Friday and 8am-6pm on weekends until 30 September.

Between 1 October 2017 – 31 March 2018, they will be open 8.30am-4.30pm Monday to Sunday.

Will people be able to take black bags full of refuse to the Community Recycling Centres?

It will no longer be possible to throw a black bag into a skip without first ensuring that all recyclable materials have been removed.

Anyone who takes bags to the Community Recycling Centre will be asked to open the bags, remove all items that can be recycled and put them in the appropriate skips first.

How will this work?

An area will be provided where bags can be placed on tables alongside recycling receptacles. Householders will need to open the bags, remove any recyclable items and place them in the relevant containers.

The non-recyclable items can then be disposed of in a separate landfill waste container.

How can people avoid having to do this?

If householders are planning on taking rubbish to the Community Recycling Centre, it is important to pre-sort any rubbish it so that recyclable materials can be easily disposed of on arrival.

A similar procedure has already been introduced in Rhondda Cynon Taff where sites there are recording recycling rates in excess of 90 per cent.

As the two black boxes used as part of the current kerbside scheme are not required for the new recycling procedures, householders may want to use these to help transport pre-sorted items to the Community Recycling Centre.

Does this apply to people who have dispensations?

Yes – it applies to everyone who opts to take rubbish to a Community Recycling Centre.

Will there be staff on hand to help and offer support?

Yes – staff from Kier will be happy to advise and assist users of our Community Recycling Centres.

Will the centres feature a facility offering unwanted items that are in good condition?

We are looking into this now and will have more news soon.
