Powys County Council is also encouraging households to reduce, reuse and recycle as much of their household waste as possible.
Cllr Phyl Davies, Cabinet Member for Waste and Recycling, said: “Christmas is one of the most joyous times of the year but it can also generate a lot of waste. It is important that households recycle as much as they can over this period so they don’t run out of space in their black wheeled bin or purple sacks.
“By recycling your waste wherever possible, we can reduce the amount sent to landfill and also help to achieve the strict recycling targets set by Welsh Government.”
When the weather is bad, households are asked to put out their waste and recycling as normal. If it is not collected, they should take it back in at the end of the day and put it out the following day.
