Rubbish tips in more than half of Wales' 22 local authorities will open today.
Recycling centres have already opened in Wrexham, Merthyr Tydfil and Rhondda Cynon Taff - but 12 more councils will be reopening their facilities today.
Most require booking and are for "essential visits" only.
About 1,100 laptops and 250 mobile WiFi devices have been handed out to help pupils access online classes in Neath Port Talbot.
Following the Welsh Government announcement that there would be extra funding for learners without access to laptops and broadband, schools engaged with families to check their needs.
The council's IT department has now delivered almost all of the requested equipment to schools, with a few deliveries still to be made.
Councillor Peter Rees said: “It means a lack of access to a laptop or broadband will no longer be a barrier to learning."
