Recycling and waste collections in our area will take place as normal over the Easter period.
Powys County Council will be collecting recycling and waste on Good Friday (April 14) and on Easter Monday (April 17).
Householders and trade waste customers are being reminded that they should place out their recycling and waste by 7.30am on their usual collection day.
Cllr John Powell, Cabinet Member for Waste and Recycling, said: “Recycling the extra packaging produced at Easter is important and will help towards achieving the strict recycling targets set by Welsh Government.
“Cardboard packaging, envelopes and cards can be recycled in your blue paper and card box and hard plastic items and silver foil packaging usually found around Easter eggs can be recycled in your red plastic and cans box.
“We would like to remind households that we do not accept plastic film items including items such as carrier bags, bubble wrap, food bags and cling film so please put this material in with your black wheeled bin or purple sack.”
