SOME RECYCLING centres in Monmouthshire will reopen on Tuesday May 26.

Monmouthshire’s sites in Llanfoist and Five Lanes, Caldicot, will reopen that day, with restrictions in place.

Monmouthshire council has warned that anyone turning up without a booking will be turned away at the gate.

The county’s other two recycling centres, in Mitchel Troy and Usk, will remain closed.

The council says it cannot safely open these sites and maintain rules of social distancing, while staff are also needed to support the opening of the larger facilities.

Monmouthshire councillor Jane Pratt, cabinet member for infrastructure, said the council has had to “consider the safety of everyone concerned” for the sites to re-open.

“Only go if it is essential,” she said.

“Do observe social distancing when you visit, and take your own gloves or hand sanitiser with you.

“It’s important to reduce your time at the recycling centre, and this is why we are asking for everyone to pre-sort their recycling before they leave home.”

Residents in Monmouthshire should take their permits with them to the centres.

The county council will release details on how to book next week.
