Coronavirus: Update to the Waste Services

With the ongoing Coronavirus situation, here is the latest update regarding Waste Services provided by Ceredigion County Council.

Recycling and Food Waste

Stocks of clear recycling bags and food waste caddy liners have been delivered to various locations in Ceredigion. Use sparingly and do not stockpile. Visits to these sites should only be undertaken when necessary and as part of another essential journey. Social distancing protocols should be strictly applied.

Clear Recycling Sacks and Food Caddy Liners collection points (subject to availability):

  • Community Recycling Hubs (If open)
  • Outside the Council Offices at Penmorfa and County Hall, Aberaeron
  • Outside the Council Offices at Canolfan Rheidol, Aberystwyth
  • Aberystwyth Library
  • Lampeter Library
  • Cardigan Library

General Household waste

Place all personal waste, such as used tissues, disposable cleaning cloths, disposable face coverings, disposable gloves and any other Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in your black bag and tie the bag.

Double bag all your black bag waste during this period.

If you are self-isolating with confirmed or suspected Covid-19. Do not place personal waste (such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths) out for collection for at least three days. As an example, if you have filled/tied a bag on a Monday and your collection is due on a Thursday, that bag can be put out for collection on Thursday morning. However, if you have filled/tied a bag on a Monday and your collection is due on a Wednesday, you would need to hold onto that bag until your next collection. This is the advice from the government designed to prevent transmission of the virus.

Remember, that you can check your waste collection date by using the Post Code search on the Council’s website, Household Waste Collections, where the new waste collection calendars for 2020 – 2022 can also be downloaded.

The following service areas are closed until further notice:

  • Bulky Household and Garden Waste Collections.

Household Waste Sites

Household Waste Sites (HWS) across Ceredigion have reopened. Residents are urged only to visit the sites if this is essential - if the waste items can’t be stored safely at home or if they can’t be collected as part of the usual domestic waste collections.
