It is with heavy heart that the decision was made, as of close of business today, (Sunday, March 22nd) to suspend day-to-day operation of our Salvage Shed project at the HWRC/Potters until further notice.
This decision comes as the obvious result of further and further restrictions on social contact imposed at a national level.
Potters Recycling have instigated amongst their staff a policy of no-touching when it comes to the handling of materials, and are enforcing a 2-metre exclusion zone between staff and customers to minimise potential contamination. Our business, which sees the receipt and distribution of physical goods and a heavy preponderance of cash-money sales, makes touching unavoidable, and hence puts both employee and customer at risk, despite our precautions thus far.
It is our greatest hope to re-instigate service from this site as soon as possible, and we would like to thank all concerned for helping make this partnership so successful thus far.
PLEASE NOTE THAT AS OF THIS WRITING THE HWRC/POTTERS SITE IS STILL OPEN TO DEPOSIT YOUR WASTE; THE CLOSURE OF THE SKILLSHOP SALVAGE SHED IN NO WAY IMPLIES ANY CLOSURE OF THE WIDER SITE.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
SkillShop is developing a social enterprise village at Pen Dinas (adjacent to NPTC Newtown campus) dedicated to closing the economic loop in Mid Wales.
We promote and develop local skills and products, and encourage re-purposing and re-use to create new value from old; to challenge the throw-away mindset that is ecologically unsustainable.
We run workshops and services for local people, led by local people, to meet the needs of local people. We aim to make for a more sustainable tomorrow by demonstrating better practice today.
