BLAENAU Gwent County Borough Council will open its Roseheyworth Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) on Monday (April 19).
Roseheyworth is the second household waste and recycling site in Blaenau Gwent located at Roseheyworth Business Park, Abertillery.
The site will provide a full suite of recycling services to take items such as electrical goods, household batteries, garden waste, cardboard, paint white goods such as freezers, fridges and washing machines, plus carpets and mattresses.
Full details on how to book an appointment and guidelines for visits is available on the Council’s website: https://www.blaenau-gwent.gov.uk/en/resident/waste-recycling/visit-a-recycling-centre/
From summer 2021, the centre will also feature a re-use shop operated by Wastesavers, where residents can donate items that are in good condition and free from defect so that they can be bought and re-used by someone else.
Restrictions and safety measure have been put in place. All visits will be made by appointment only. This is to ensure that visits to the centre are managed in a safe and structured way to protect residents and workers and to comply with the current advice on social distancing.
Pre-booking will be essential, and residents will be required to bring proof of booking with them. Failing to do so may result in vehicles being turned away.
Due to the social distancing measures put in place, our staff cannot help unload or carry items under any circumstances. A second member of your household may attend to assist with the removal and disposal of bulky items but may only leave the car when indicated it is safe to do so by a site attendant.
If residents or members of their household have symptoms of COVID19, please do not visit the site.
The same site rules will apply to Roseheyworth HWRC and New Vale HWRC.
The Roseheyworth centre will open from 9 am until 5.30 pm all year round, six days a week, closing on Tuesdays.
Meanwhile, the New Vale site will open seven days a week, 10 am-4.30 pm, until May 1.
From May 1, it will open from 9 am – 5.30 pm all year round, six days a week, and it will be closed on Thursdays.
