Community Recycling Centre Update

Planning a trip to a Community Recycling Centre this weekend?

As the summer finally begins and the sunshine’s on Rhondda Cynon Taf, lots of RCT residents will be using their weekends and evenings clearing out their garages, gardens and other spaces.

All Community Recycling Centres across Rhondda Cynon Taf are currently open from 8am until 7.30pm and are operating under strict COVID-19 Rules.

The COVID-19 rules, which are in place to safeguard both staff and residents, limit the number of vehicles that can enter the site and there is a 10 minute drop-off limit per vehicle. During exceptionally busy times queues can build up quickly and residents are being advised to be patient and if they can visit another time, to please do so.

There are currently six Community Recycling Centres (CRC) in Rhondda Cynon Taf:

Ty Amgen Community Recycling Centre, Llwydcoed, Aberdare, CF44 0BX
Ferndale Community Recycling Centre, North Road, Ferndale, CF43 4RS
Dinas Community Recycling Centre, Cymmer Road, Dinas, CF39 9BL
Ty Glantaf Community Recycling Centre, Taffs Fall Road, Treforest Industrial Estate, CF37 5TT
Llantrisant 100% Recycling Centre, Pant-Y-Brad Road off Heol-Y-Sarn, Llantrisant Industrial Estate, CF72 8YT
Treherbert Community Recycling Centre, Treherbert Industrial Estate, Treherbert, CF42 5HZ

All of these facilities will cater for all recycling needs, including white goods, cardboard, clothing, plastics, light fittings, wood, glass, metal, engine oil, fluorescent tubes, plasterboards, old toys, paint, tyres, old tv’s and lots more.

All of the centres are manned and the attendants are happy to advise residents on recycling, however under COVID-19 guidelines they are unable to assist with lifting items and residents are reminded to observe the 2metre social distancing guidance at all times whilst on site.

Both re-use shops ‘The-Shed’ based at Treherbert and Llantrisant Recycling Centres have now re-opened to the public for browsing and donations. For the latest information visit www.rctcbc.gov.uk/TheShed

Tissues, wipes - cleaning or personals, face masks, gloves, home lateral flow test kits or any other Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) are not accepted at Community Recycling Centres and should be placed in your black bag waste – if anyone in your household has symptoms of coronavirus these items should also be double bagged and put out after 72 hours.

Councillor Ann Crimmings, Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Leisure and Heritage Services, said:

“Our Community Recycling Centres help provide daily access for our residents to recycling services and it’s great to see that our residents are keeping up their huge recycling efforts.

“The centres are always popular this time of year and even more so this year. I would ask residents to please be patient as the staff are doing all that they can to assist everyone safely.”
