The community recycling site at Co-op in Cusop, Hay on Wye is set to close in early February. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The recycling banks at this site will be removed during the week beginning 8 February 2016. Residents will be directed to the community recycling site at Oxford Road, which is a short distance away, and has a wide range of recycling banks enabling residents to recycle more materials such as paper, cardboard, plastics, cans, glass, green garden waste and textiles. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Councillor John Powell, Cabinet Member for Environment and Sustainability, said: “With the weekly kerbside recycling service and an alternative community recycling site at Oxford Road for larger items such as cardboard, green waste and textiles, Hay is well served for recycling facilities. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

With the help of residents, Powys is now on track to achieve the Welsh Government’s statutory target for 2015/16 which will avoid having to pay large fines. We would like to thank residents and traders for their efforts to date and urge everyone to keep up the good work so that we can continue to improve and meet the even harder targets that we are facing in the near future.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
