Bag sorting to restart at the Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC)

Written by on 7th April 2021

On Wednesday 14 April, bag sorting will restart at the HWRC located in New Inn.

Residents visiting the site with mixed bagged waste will have to open their bags for staff. Anything that could be recycled will need to be taken out for recycling. Only non-recyclable items will be allowed in the household waste residual skip.

Residents who don’t want to sort their bagged waste on site will have to take their waste home.

If you are bringing bagged waste to the site make sure you bring your own Personal Protective Equipment. We are still in a pandemic so health and safety is still a top priority.

Tips before visiting the HWRC:

  • Sort through your waste at home into recyclables and non-recyclables
  • Use the kerbside recycling scheme to recycle as much of your waste as possible. This may mean you don’t even have to visit the HWRC after you’ve sorted through everything
  • If you need a trip to the HWRC take a look at the site layout map to plan your visit – this will help you organise your boot when loading it up
  • Make sure you are able to easily open any bagged waste ready for you visit to the HWRC

If you are bringing bagged waste to the site make sure you bring your own Personal Protective Equipment. We are still in a pandemic so health and safety is still a top priority.

Research shows that 60% of bagged waste can easily be recycled, so help us to recycle more in Torfaen by checking what goes in your black bag before visiting the HWRC.
