Powys council's household waste recycling centres

Whilst all household waste is accepted at these sites, householders are asked to sort any mixed waste before visiting or will be asked to do so on site before putting it in the various marked containers.  As these sites are paid for by Powys residents, you may at times be asked to provide proof of your address before depositing any material.
