Councillors have discussed closing leisure centres and civic amenity sites as part of at least £13m of cuts.
Further reductions in funding from the Welsh Government could mean Caerphilly County Borough Council has to save up to £30m between 2015 and 2017.
Members of the Regeneration and Environment Scrutiny Committee met on July 30 to discuss a report written by council officers outlining where cuts could be made.
Rhymney Civic Amenity Site was saved last year but could be one of five to close, as the council legally only has to provide one site for residents.
But councillors warned closing any civic amenity site would lead to an increase in fly tipping, with Cllr Carl Cuss saying Rhymney residents would not travel all the way to Aberbargoed to dump their rubbish.
Cllr John Bevan, who represents Moriah ward, said: “The complete closure of Rhymney Civic Amenity Site would be a complete disaster for the top of the valley.”
Llanbradach councillor Rob Gough said: “When we start closing these civic amenity sites we are going to cause all sorts of problems.
“I’ve seen in the last two months a serious increase in fly tipping.”
There were warnings that leisure centres could be closed or transferred to schools, with officers claiming the old buildings needed “millions” spent on them to get them up to standard.
Leisure centre provision is totally discretionary meaning the council do not have to provide any services by law – meaning all options are on the table.
They could be closed or transferred to the care of schools.
Head of Leisure Services, Mark Williams said: “As an authority we can’t go on providing the amount of services we currently provide.”
One option is to close Cefn Fforest Leisure Centre, saving almost £250,000 a year. The report says “hopefully some swimmers would relocate to other pools but capacity for school swimming would be a sever challenge”.
Meanwhile should Caerphilly Leisure Centre be closed swimmers would be expected to use pools in Cardiff, Newport, Merthyr and Rhondda Cynon Taff.
Cllr Janet Jones, of Heolddu ward, said: “If you close any swimming pool you can offer other pools for people but they wont be able to use them properly because they will be so busy.
“If you want to encourage sport you need the facillities.”
Councillors also discussed closing bowling greens, cutting street cleaning and provision of flower beds and hanging baskets as well as reducing park rangers and increasing the charges paid to hire sport pitches and facillities.
Mark Williams said closure of all public toilets was “on the table” despite councillors warning of public anger at this year’s closures.
Acting Deputy Chief Executive, Sandra Aspinall, warned it would be impossible to make this level of cuts without making redundancies and effecting workers’ terms and conditions.
The officers will report to the scrutiny committee again in the autumn when recommended cuts will be passed to the Cabinet.
