Planning permission has been granted for a new recycling centre in Newtown.

The new Powys County Council owned waste and recycling centre will be based at the Dyffryn Industrial Estate, replacing  the current one operated by Potters on behalf of the county council at Wern Ddu Lane.
The council purchased the site in Newtown last year to establish a new centre which would be in the council’s ownership. Sites in Brecon, Llandrindod Wells and Ystradgynlais are already owned by the council.
Cllr Phyl Davies, Cabinet Member for Recycling and Waste, said: “I’m delighted that our application for a new household waste recycling centre in Newtown has been approved. This will be a considerable improvement on the current site, which is not suitable due to its size and location.
“The investment in this new centre is part of our long-term plans to secure strategic recycling and waste facilities across the county. Having household waste recycling centres in our ownership provides security for this valued service.
“Household waste recycling centres are an essential element for achieving the Welsh Government’s ambitious target to recycle at least 70 per centre of waste by 2025.”
The council intends to start developing the site shortly and will announce when it will open when works are nearing completion.

The council is currently undertaking a pre planning consultation for a recycling bulking centre and business park near Abermule.
