People have been evacuated from around a waste depot after a dismantled training grenade and ammunition were found in a rubbish bag.
Monmouthshire council closed its Caerwent site for a short period after the discovery in a bag of garden waste.
Police were called at 12:27 BST on Friday and put in place a cordon, evacuating people from within 100m of the depot as a precaution.
The council said nobody was hurt and the site re-opened within hours.
