Information from Environment Roads and Facilities - CCBC - HOUSEHOLD RECYCLING CENTRES AND BULKY WASTE

We are pleased to be able to reopen the Household Recycling Centres at Mochdre and Abergele from Tuesday 26 May. With the need for social distancing and to manage the demand from residents, there are some changes to the way the Household Recycling Centres will be running:

  • Visits to the Household Recycling Centres are by appointment only
  • Visits are restricted to cars (and vans with permits) only. No trailers will be allowed on site.
  • Each household is allowed one visit, to make sure that everyone who wants to use the centres can get an appointment.
  • The sites cannot accept carpet or textiles (clothes) at the moment
  • To help prevent delays and reduce contact at payment machines, the Council is waiving some of the usual charges for non-household waste. Residents will not be charged for up to 3 bags of rubble, soil or wood.

Although lockdown restrictions have been eased, we should still only make essential journeys. We’re encouraging residents to think about using our usual kerbside collections, green waste collection or bulky waste collection instead, before they book an appointment. Residents can book an appointment from Thursday 21 May 2020 on our website or by calling the Advice Team on 01492 575337. There are appointments available every day at each site. Appointments are available for the next 4 weeks. Bulky waste collections will restart on Monday 1 June, with our partner Crest. Residents can book their collections from Thursday 21 May. We are reviewing the rural mobile recycling centres to see how we could reopen these safely. We hope the attached Frequently Asked Questions will help you answer any questions from your residents.

    o scam emails offering fake products such as anti-bacterial gels or a cure for coronavirus.

  • Make all your volunteers aware of current scams.

  • Tell volunteers to remind those they are helping not to give out credit or debit card details, personal identification numbers or passwords.

  • Help your volunteer show who they are by providing them with an email or text message with your group or organisation’s details, and a contact telephone number.

  • Tell your volunteers to report anything suspicious regarding fraudulent activity to your organisation or the person leading volunteers.

  • You or your volunteers should report any concerns to Action Fraud 0300 123 2040.

    WCVA More opportunities for Active Inclusion Funding to 2022
    WCVA is pleased to confirm that the next phase of Active Inclusion funding is now open to applications and will continue to be open for applications for the next few years.

    In good news for the third sector in Wales, it’s very much business as usual, but the length of eligible projects has now been extended so they can be delivered up to June 2022.

    The Active Inclusion Fund aims to help organisations improve the employability of disadvantaged people who need extra assistance to access the labour market. It does this by offering supported employment placements, funded training opportunities and skills and confidence building activities.
    Organisations that have previously completed an Eligibility Questionnaire and are on the Approved Beneficiaries List are already eligible to apply. The grant application form has also been updated to make the process easier.
    Tessa White, Head of IB Grant & Verification at WCVA, said ‘We’ve had great success with the current Active Inclusion programme to date and want to emphasise that whatever happens with Brexit, these projects can be delivered until June 2022, so we would encourage anyone who’s interested to apply.’

    There are four rounds:
    West Wales & the Valleys 25+
    West Wales & the Valleys Youth
    East Wales 25+
    East Wales Youth

    For more information on the fund and how to apply, take a look at the Active Inclusion Fund webpages at www.wcva.org.uk/activeinclusion or contact a member of the team on activeinclusion@wcva.org.uk or ring the team on 0300 111 0124.
