Recycling Centres

23/3/20 Important Notice All recycling centres will be closed with immediate effect until further notice. Keep up to date

Residents are allowed a maximum of 12 permits per year for all vans, pick-up vehicles and double axle trailers. ‘Tipper/ Flatbed' vans and large 7.5t vans are not allowed on site.

Black Bag Splitting 

Our bag splitting operation is up and running at all our sites. Please make sure no recyclable materials are in your black bags. Read more

Household waste not collected as part of the kerbside recycling service can be sorted and taken to our Household Waste and Recycling Centres.

To use these facilities, you must be a resident of Neath Port Talbot and be recycling or disposing your own household waste. Trade or commercial waste is not accepted. See Commercial Waste for more information.

Please make sure there are no recyclable materials in your black bags before disposing of them in the waste skips at our recycling centres.

You need to remove recyclable materials from your black bags before you bring them to the site. Examples include:

  • Paper
  • Cardboard
  • Cans
  • Glass 
  • Plastics

If you need help removing recyclable materials, site operatives will help you when you arrive.

Why are we making these changes? 

  • The new recycling targets we have been given by the Welsh Government requires us to recycle 64% of Waste by 2019/2020 and 70% by 2025.
  • Recent analysis of black bag waste shows that just over 60% of the household waste in black bags can be recycled.
  • Black bag waste that contains recyclable material is costly to dispose of. Sorting it before you bring it not only helps us achieve our next recycling targets but will save money as well.
