All Neath Port Talbot Waste and Recycling Centres have been closed since March 24th 2020 and when they re-open on Tuesday 26th May, it will be with significant safety measures in place and we have all the info you need to know about them and the Booking System you will have to use.
It will not be business as usual when the Waste and Recycling Centres open again across Neath Port Talbot and you will not be able to just turn up to use the facilities as all visitors will have to pre-book a slot and follow a number of restrictions and guidelines to ensure that social distancing and good hygiene is observed at all times.
The introduction of a booking system is so to make sure that the facilities are used in a safe manner for staff and the public while remaining fair for all households in Neath Port Talbot.
The booking system you will need to secure your space on will open from 9am on Friday 22nd May.
You will have to book your slot online on their booking system here
Each slot will be a 20 minute time slot and you will not be allowed into the centre if you do not have a slot pre-booked.
This booking system will be able to control the number of vehicles to a maximum of ten in Briton Ferry and three in Cymmer at any one time and you will need to provide proof of residency on your arrival.
Along with regular cleaning of ‘touch points’, Waste and Recycling Centres sites will be cleansed during and at the end of each day including walkways, handrails etc.
Neath Port Talbot residents in the Swansea Valley area will be able to use the Waste and Recycling Centre at Lower Cwmtwrch
Powys will also be re-opening their Waste and Recycling Centres from Tuesday 26th May for essential use only and they will also have new similar guidelines in place to ensure social distancing is observed at all times.
Powys Council are not requesting you pre-book a slot online, however each car will have a limit of 10 minutes to drop off their waste, so you are being asked to segregate waste before you arrive.
It is anticipated that the Waste and Recycling Centre will be busy so expect to queue patiently staying in your car at all times and you will need to provide proof of residency on your arrival.
