Update June 2022…
The Recycling Centre operates a booking system.

You have about 10 minutes to unload.  Four vehicles maximum in the yard.
It is well-organized, safe and friendly.
You can visit up to three times per month.  I’m already looking forward to my next visit!

Rowen Car Park is not a dumping ground for commercial catering waste, domestic rubbish, furniture, builders’ waste etc.  This is  fly-tipping and offenders may be prosecuted.
You can report fly-tipping to Conwy Council via

Blister pack recycling in Rowen Memorial Hall, suspended for the time being.

Rowen’s Car Boot Sales are a great way to convert your unwanted clutter into folding cash, and an enjoyable social occasion.

You can give unwanted items away on Trash Nothing Conwy, which is similar to the old Conwy FreeCycle.  Old pallets, flatscreen TV and a guinea pig hutch were all on offer one day recently.
You can advertize unwanted items on the Rowen Facebook Group now with 1.3k members.
Or you can email us with unwanted items for collection, and we will add them to our weekly Rowen email newsletter, eg. Old shed, greenhouse, horticultural glass, timber etc.  Email

Occasional community skips for domestic waste are provided in Rowen Car Park.  Thanks to Caerhun Community Council.
