BOOKING slots are now open for two recycling centres in Monmouthshire, which are set to re-open next week.

The centres at Llanfoist and Five Lanes will open on Tuesday, May 26 - but anyone visiting must book a slot beforehand, or they will be turned away.

The Mitchel Troy and Usk sites will remain closed until further notice.


Special slots, from 8am to 8.30am and 8.30am to 9am, have been set aside for key workers.

The council says residents will only be able to dispose of “small amounts of household waste” and has urged residents to “think carefully” before visiting one of the sites.

On its website, the council says: “Non-essential use puts yourself, other members of the public and our staff at risk from spreading the infection.

“Under the current guidelines, you should only make this journey if your waste is causing a hazard to health and cannot be stored at home.”

Not only do slots need to be booked in advance, but residents will be required to bring either their permit or their driving licence.

The Five Lanes site in Caerwent will be open every day from 8am to 5.45pm, except Thursdays where the site will be shut. The Llanfoist site  in Abergavenny operates the same opening hours but is closed on Wednesdays not Thursdays.
