Carmarthenshire Waste and Recycling Centres Re-Opens
All four of Carmarthenshire’s Waste and Recycling Centres are due to re-open on Tuesday 26th May, for essential use only, dispose of any household waste that poses a health and safety risk at home and we have all the info you need to know about the strict new guidelines and the Booking System you will have to use.
When Carmarthenshire Waste and Recycling Centres open again 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 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 Carmarthenshire.
The Booking System
The booking system you will need to secure your space on will open from 8.30 am on Thursday 21st May.
You can only book your slot via Carmarthenshire County Council website and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
Trostre and Nantycaws will be open seven-days a week and Whitland and Wernddu in Ammanford will be open Wednesdays to Sundays.
Just under 4,000 appointments will be available across the four recycling centres each week. This will be under constant review. To ensure it is fair to everyone, residents will initially be able to make one appointment per month.
Only one week of appointments will be available at one time to book and new appointments will be released on a weekly basis at 8.30am every Thursday.
You can only make one booking per month to make it as fair as possible for everyone and you will not be allowed into the centre if you do not have a slot pre-booked.
You can access the Online Booking System Here
New Guidelines for Waste and Recycling Centres
Residents are being urged to ensure they only visit the recycling centres if it is an essential journey – i.e. the waste is causing a public health concern or safety concern, or cannot be collected at kerbside via the usual refuse and recycling collections.
So before booking an appointment Carmarthenshire Council is asking if everyone can consider if they could use their regular recycling / bin collections, bulky waste or garden waste service.
Strict social distancing measures will be in place within the recycling centres and must be obeyed at all times.
In the interests of safety, staff will not be helping residents to unload any goods during this time therefore residents are being urged to ensure that they are able to unload any materials themselves.
Up to two people (from the same household) will be allowed to get out of the car to unload heavy/large items.
If site rules and social distancing isn’t met the council will have to re-evaluate the position and may be forced to close once more.
Usual rules apply on proof of identity that residents are from Carmarthenshire and vehicle permits. This information can be found on the recycling, bins and litter pages on their website.
