Registration for the 2022 garden waste recycling collection service is now open

Comments Off on Registration for the 2022 garden waste recycling collection service is now open

Residents across Powys can now subscribe to this season’s easy, clean and simple garden waste recycling collection service, offered by the county council.

Residents are now able to subscribe to the service for the 2022 season by visiting www.powys.gov.uk/gardenwaste or by calling 01597 827465.

The annual subscription of £39 includes the hire of a 240-litre wheeled bin and fortnightly collections of your garden waste between 28 February and the 2 December. With 20 possible collections, the service works out at less than £2 for each full bin of material collected and recycled. A smaller 120-litre bin is available at a reduced rate for households with small gardens, or compostable garden waste sacks for those who have their non-recyclable rubbish collected in purple bags.

Residents who already benefited from using the service in 2021 will be contacted shortly to remind them to re-subscribe for another season. Once registered for the 2022 season, they will receive a sticker to place on their green wheeled bin to indicate to the crew that they have signed up for 2022.

New subscribers to the service will have their green wheeled bin delivered by the council within 10 working days, so make sure you sign up early to benefit from all the scheduled collections starting at the end of February.

Cllr Heulwen Hulme, Cabinet Member for Recycling and Waste, said: “It has been another tough winter for us all and we are all very much looking forward to the arrival of Spring to help lift all our spirits. Once the nights begin to draw out and the weather turns finer, many of us will be keen to get out into the garden once more.

“The collection service, which costs less than £2 per collection if people subscribe now, means that residents have an easy, clean and simple way of getting rid of their garden waste, with the knowledge that it will all be recycled and turned into compost.

“Signing up to the collection service will not only mean that residents don’t have to get the inside of their cars dirty and covered in grass cuttings and twigs, but it is also a sustainable and cost-effective way of recycling your garden waste.”

Residents not subscribing to the service will still be able to compost their garden waste at home or take it to one of the five household waste recycling centres in Powys.

Do you know the history of Tin Town?

Comments Off on Do you know the history of Tin Town?

The Grwyne Fawr Valley used to be a very different place.  In the early 1900s a temporary village was set up to house men employed to build Grwyne Fawr Reservoir with a railway line constructed to transport both men and materials to the top of the valley.  This village was officially named “Navvy Village” however because the buildings were built of wood and corrugated iron became commonly known as “Tin Town”.

Tin Town – Blaen Y Cwm

Tin Town had a hospital, lodging house, chapel, school and jail.   Concrete bases and steps of some of these buildings can still be found at Blaen Y Cwm.  Seems remarkable now, but the village had electricity before Abergavenny!

When the reservoir was finished in 1928, at a cost of some £1,000,000, Tin Town was dismantled and its buildings sold off.  The school master’s house was re-erected in Llanbedr.

Tin Town – today

The Vale of Grwyney Community Council believe the history of Tin Town should be preserved and intend putting an information board at Blaen Y Cwm to commemorate and promote its heritage.


Do you have any local knowledge or information which could be put on this board?  If so, please let us know
