From 2nd November Powys County Council are moving to three weekly rubblish collections.  Food waste and recycling collections will continue to be collected on a weekly basis.

Powys CC state:

The move will generate savings of more than £480,000 in a full year and provide a boost to the county’s overall recycling rates – the county has to reach a 58% rate for the financial year 2015/16 under stringent Welsh Government targets. Moving to a three weekly rubbish collection system will deliver savings and ensure that even more of our waste is recycled.

There is a long way to go to meet the Welsh Government’s targets and there will be even tougher limits in years to come. With residents support we can meet both our budget and recycling targets. 

Householders will receive an information pack detailing these changes later this month.”
