Your Local Recycling Centre

New Vale Household Waste Recycling Centre, Waun-y-Pound Industrial Estate, Ebbw Vale, NP23 6PL.

The site is open to residents every day except Christmas Day and New Year's Day. Please see opening hours below.

8:00am - 7:00pm, 1st May - 30th September. The last admittance to the site is 6:50pm

10:00am - 4:30pm, 1st October - 30th April. The last admittance to the site is 4:20pm

Due to the site license conditions no waste/recycling can be deposited outside of the site operating hours. Please ensure that when visiting the site that you allow sufficient time to deposit your materials and leave the site before the official closing times.

As from Monday 11th June 2018 every resident visiting the HWRC taking black bag waste will have to sort into material type for recycling. Any resident refusing to sort their black bag waste on site will be told to take this waste home.

Why are we making these changes?

We want to ensure that residents in Blaenau Gwent recycle as much as possible. Research has shown that 70% black bag waste can be recycled. We need to stop recyclable materials such as glass, cans, paper, plastics and cardboard being thrown away as these can be collected at the kerbside.

Please keep these items out of your black refuse bags!
