  • Automated telephone payments service
    The local rate telephone number is 0845 3052 199 and you should have your account/reference number to hand, along with your chosen method of payment, which may be a debit or a credit card.
  • In person
    You can call at the Cash Office in the Civic Centre or any District Housing Office (except Gorseinon) to pay bills in the normal way.  Please have your bill to hand, so that our staff can take the necessary details. Please note that if making a Welsh Water payment, then neither debit nor credit cards are accepted.


Our online payment facility will take you to a secure site with Civica our payments provider. Our secure server software uses an SSL connection and encrypts all your personal information including credit or debit card number and name and address. The encryption process takes the characters you enter and converts them into bits of code that are then securely transmitted over the internet.

The Council's online payment system also supports the MasterCard SecureCode® and Verified by Visa® 3D Secure service to give an added level of protection when making payments online via the internet. To benefit from the additional security offered by these schemes you will need to register with the bank that issued your payment card.

Registered users will see an additional screen appear when making their payment. This screen will ask some security questions that will verify the user before the payment is processed.

If you are not registered you may be invited to register your card before continuing with your payment (depending upon your card issuer). If you wish you can elect not to register your card at this time, we will still process your payment.

Please contact your card issuer for more details of these services and how to register your card with a password.
