You must book a slot in advance before you visit a Recycling Centre.


It has been agreed that the booking system will be kept permanently.

The booking system was brought in to re-open sites safely in line with Welsh Government Covid guidelines. The system proved very successful in not only managing social distancing and site management but also in increasing recycling, reducing queuing, reducing aggression on site and delivering a more sustainable service model. As such the Council decided to adopt the booking system and make it permanent last year. The report that recommended these changes went through a robust scrutiny process with residents and Members.

DIY waste is restricted to five bags or a small car boot load per visit with a maximum of two visits per month.
DIY waste refers only to materials arising from small scale works in a householder’s own property. For large scale works, householders are expected to use a private waste contractor or hire a skip.

Asbestos is hazardous waste and we would recommend that you contact a specialist contractor to deal with any asbestos waste safely. Small amounts of Asbestos from a householder will be accepted at Five Lanes or Llanfoist HWRCs. Please see our guidance for Asbestos disposal
