All five of Swansea’s Waste and Recycling Centres are due to re-open on Tuesday 26th May, for dispose of certain types of household waste, not including Black Bags, that poses a health and safety risk at home and we have all the info you need to know about the strict new guidelines you need to know about.
When Swansea Waste and Recycling Centres open again you will not be able dispose of all the normal household items in the early stages, so help the sites operate safely and allow for social distancing measures for staff and the visiting public.
You will not need to pre-book a slot, you can just simply turn up and wait your turn to enter, which could result in the people having to wait in long queues.
Mark Thomas, Cabinet Member for Environment and Infrastructure Management has said "Long queues of traffic in other parts of the country have recently led to Councils closing recycling centres shortly after reopening because of traffic concerns. We want to avoid this as well. Residents can play their part by being sensible and only visiting one of our sites if it's essential to them."
Initially no Recycling Centre in Swansea will Not be accepting Black Bags.
So that all recycling centres can maintain social distancing they will have to reduce initial demand and this is why to start with they will only be accepting a very limited range of materials, which you can see in the table below
This list will be regularly reviewed so you can check on their website before visiting.
You should only visit the recycling centre if it is essential, for example, if waste materials cannot be stored at home without causing risk of injury or harm to health. Please think carefully before you decide to visit the site. Non-essential use puts yourself, other members of the public and our staff at unnecessary risk from spreading the infection.
