Rural mobile recycling centre restarting next week
Conwy’s rural mobile recycling centre will be restarting next week. Residents will need an appointment to go to the centre and there are some other changes.
Conwy County Borough Council has announced that its rural mobile recycling centre, which visits Cerrigydrudion, Llanrwst and Llangernyw every month, will restart on Saturday 4 July. The sites will be operating a strict appointment system, with slots released for each site for July.
Visits to the recycling centres will be restricted to cars (and vans with permits) but no trailers are allowed. Each household is allowed one visit per month to one of the three sites, to make sure that everyone who wants to use the centre can get an appointment.
The mobile centre doesn’t accept DIY waste such as wood, rubble, plasterboard, doors or windows, which must be taken to the main recycling centres at Mochdre and Abergele.
“After the success of reopening the household recycling centres, we are pleased that we’re now able to restart the mobile recycling service for residents in rural parts of the county. We’ve put strict measures in place to make sure that staff and the public can be safe, which is why we are asking residents to make an appointment,” said Cllr Greg Robbins, Cabinet Member for Environment and Transportation.
This project received funding through the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.
Residents can book an appointment for the mobile recycling centre online from Monday 29 June 2020 at www.conwy.gov.uk/recycling or call Conwy’s Environment Advice Team on 01492 575337.
Residents with larger items can also use the Council’s bulky waste collection service.
