As a mark of respect for the funeral of HM Queen Elizabeth II, Powys County Council has confirmed that there will be no planned waste or recycling collections on this coming bank holiday, Monday 19 September.
“Normally the crews always plan to work over the bank holidays to avoid causing undue disruption to collections.” Explains Cllr Jackie Charlton, Cabinet Member for a Greener Powys. “But the significance of this bank holiday is not lost on us. We believe, that as a mark of respect for the Queen and the royal family, we should not be asking our crew to work next Monday.”
The waste and recycling collections next week, including garden waste will all move on a day, with the crews working on Saturday 24 September to complete the weeks rounds.

“Our crews are always so hard working, especially in the recent difficult circumstances faced by the waste and recycling service due to staff shortages. Often working long hours or even double shifts to try and ensure rounds are completed, and bins are emptied. It is only fair and respectful that we allow them to take this extraordinary bank holiday off work.” Added Cllr Charlton.
All Household Waste Recycling Centres will be closed on Monday 19 September.
