The new kerbside waste and recycling collections that are being rolled out throughout Powys will be arriving in Crossgates and Penybont from next month, enabling the villages to recycle much more of their waste.
The changes, which mirror the new scheme in Llandrindod, affects anyone living within the restricted speed limit areas of Crossgates and Penybont, plus any property adjacent to the A44 between the two villages. The new collections will commence from 6 August and comprises of weekly recycling collections and a fortnightly rubbish collection.
Residents will be given three recycling boxes - a red box for cans and plastic, a blue box for paper and card and an aqua box for glass. They’ll also receive a small kitchen caddy for food waste with compostable liners and a larger lockable caddy for outside storage, plus a black wheeled bin for non-recyclable rubbish.
Deliveries of an introductory leaflet, including a form to request a smaller wheeled bin, will be issued to affected households next week (w/c 9 July). The containers will then be delivered to households in the week before the new collections.
A drop-in surgery will take place on Thursday 19 July at Crossgates Community Centre from 2pm until 7pm where residents can come and speak to Powys County Council staff about the changes, as well as see examples of the new bins and containers.
