Mitchel Troy recycling centre in Monmouth reopening


Monmouthshire County Council has announced that Mitchel Troy recycling centre will be reopening from Tuesday 15th September. Members of the council have taken this decision after detailed plans were put into place to ensure that the personnel and resources were available to reopen the centre safely, complying with Welsh Government's COVID-19 regulations and guidance.

The approach taken by the residents of Monmouthshire to the management of waste and recycling throughout the COVID period has been outstanding. Overall levels of waste have fallen and recycling rates, particularly at the two household recycling centres that have remained open - Llanfoist and Five Lanes - has increased by nearly 10% on the same period a year ago.

Councillor Jane Pratt, Cabinet Member for Infrastructure, said: "We now feel able to re-open Mitchel Troy recycling centre near, Monmouth, and will do so from Tuesday 15th September. The booking system that has worked so well throughout the COVID period will be employed at Mitchel Troy. Residents will have to book to enter the site which will be running on a much smaller capacity so we can ensure residents and staff are safe at all times. Bookings can be made online from the end of this week for slots next week."

Peter Fox, Leader of Monmouthshire County Council, said: "I'm pleased to see this positive step. Our climate change, sustainability and carbon reduction policy commitments remain strong and I am happy that we can now open up a third centre to improve journey times for residents. I would stress however that recycling is the priority and we will be managing both the numbers using the site and what is coming into the site very closely"

Details on how to book can be found at Residents who are not online are advised to phone 01633 644644 to make a booking once Mitchel Troy recycling centre reopens from September 15th.

"Please remember that if you or anyone in your household has symptoms of COVID-19, please do not visit the centres. Do observe social distancing when you visit, and take your own gloves or hand sanitiser with you," said Councillor Pratt. "It's also asked that you pre-sort your recycling before you leave home to help reduce time on site, and remember your permit or proof of address."

Larger items of recycling can also be collected from your kerbside by Homemakers on 01873 857618. For further details regarding what items can be collected and charges visit

At our request, Community Council members met last Wednesday with the Monmouthshire County Council Cabinet Member, Jane Pratt, and our County Councillor, Ann Webb, to discuss the timetable for the A466 road closure planned for 2021. The Community Councillors, Stephanie Shewell and Lindsay Cobb, emphasised the crucial importance of ensuring that the closure takes place before Easter to minimise the potentially disastrous impact upon the businesses in Tintern that have already been seriously adversely affected by the cumulative effects of previous road closures, the impact of the floods in March, including the delayed full reopening of Tintern Abbey until September 2020, and the ongoing situation with the Covid 19 pandemic. If the County Council is unable in the near future to provide certainty over the dates of the works for 2021, a postponement to 2022 was requested.

A further update about the timetable for the road closure will be provided when we receive a formal response from the County Council to the issues raised.

Following the First Ministers announcement on Friday 19th June that non-essential shops in Wales could reopen from Monday 22nd June. It was essential for Monmouthshire County Council to act fast and provide emergency precautionary measures to not only support this decision, but also allow people to return to our town centres and villages safely, whilst maintaining social distance.

Within Tintern, the Authority has arranged for an area wide 20mph signed only zone to be implemented as per the attached drawing. It is hoped that the reduction in speed will encourage pedestrians, cyclists and visitors to return to this historic and beautiful settlement within Monmouthshire and shop safely. It is also considered that this will provide a safe environment for all road users.

Please note that the Authority is aware of the need to return to site to bag over the existing 30mph signs which are still present within the Zone. As such, this will be done as soon as possible to ensure motorists are not provided with confusing messages.

The emergency order will remain in operation for a period of 21 days in order to allow the Authority to assess the effectiveness of the measures, with a view to provide this on a more permanent basis, albeit as a temporary order which can last up to a maximum period of 18-months.

As shops and businesses continue to open, it may also be necessary to amend or add to the restrictions mentioned above to manage the ever evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic.
