Household Waste Recycling Centres to Reopen
Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) will be open again from Monday 18 May 2020 for residents to dispose of essential household waste. Only essential journeys should be made to the HWRCs, and for residents to only use them if waste or recycling cannot be stored safely at home without causing injury, harm or risk to health. In line with Public Health England guidance, residents who are vulnerable, or who are showing symptoms which may indicate COVID-19, should not visit household recycling centres. Social distancing measures will be present to protect the public and staff, with clear signage on display which will include restricting the number of vehicles allowed on site at any one time, and a one way system for vehicles and pedestrians.
