We are pleased to announce that Household Waste & Recycling Centres (HWRC’s) in Merthyr Tydfil will re-open on Wednesday 20th May, 2020.
Our main priority is to open safely, so in order to protect our staff and residents, a number of safety measures have been put in place:
Both the Dowlais and Aberfan centres will be open Monday to Friday from 9.00am to 4.30pm. Key workers can access the sites on any day by providing proof of their work using either their valid NHS card or work ID. A list of key workers can be found below.
Councillor David Hughes, Portfolio Member for Neighbourhood Services, said: “We know a lot of our residents have been eager for the Household Waste & Recycling Centres to re-open, so we are delighted that Welsh Government guidelines now allow us to do this.
“We urge people to continue to use the kerbside waste and recycling collections where possible and only visit the HWRC’s to dispose of items that they are unable to dispose of at the kerbside.
“We’re really pleased to be able to get the sites back open and have put the above guidelines in place following stringent Risk Assessments. We ask that residents respect these guidelines at all times to make sure they are safe environments for everyone. Thank you.”
