Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRC's)

In order to ensure the safety of residents and staff working at the Council’s Household Waste Recycling Centres the following restrictions are currently in place:

  • The number of vehicles allowed on site will be restricted, and queuing times will be significantly higher
  • One person per vehicle (NB. Blue Badge holders will be able to be accompanied by one family member)
  • No vans or large trailers.
  • Social distancing of at least 2 metres will be strictly enforced.
  • Site Employees will not be able to assist with unloading.
  • Sites will be open 8.00 am – 8.00 pm every day.

If households have had COVID-19 symptoms then waste should be left for at least 72 hours before disposal and personal waste should be safely double bagged. Place it in your normal bin collection if you can.
