Update on Recycling Centres

May 29th, 2020

All recycling centres across the county to open and for longer hours from 1 June

 

Following the reopening of two more recycling centres (Warsop and Retford) on Tuesday, Nottinghamshire County Council has put plans in place to open the remaining sites at Giltbrook, Kirkby, Mansfield and West Bridgford from Monday 1 June.

The sites will remain open to cars only for now, however all recycling centres across the county will open for longer – from 8am to 6pm, 7 days a week.

Social distancing will be enforced and a strict one car in, one car out system will be in place. From Monday 8 June all household waste recycling centres will reopen to vans, trailers and pickups.

All the sites will be running a reduced service and only the following materials can be taken:
• garden waste,
• wood
• cardboard
• metals
• waste electrical and electronic equipment
• general waste

Staff will be onsite, but they will be unable to help unload due to social distancing. Residents are reminded that if they have coronavirus symptoms, are self-isolating or at a high risk of contracting the virus they should not travel to the sites.

Leader of Nottinghamshire County Council, Councillor Kay Cutts MBE, said:

“We have successfully reopened eight of the county’s recycling centres and are set to open the remaining four sites on Monday. We can do this thanks to the diligence of residents who have treated the reopening of centres sensibly and safely.

“As the sites will be open for longer, residents will have more opportunity to dispose of their waste, so I urge people not to rush to the sites. I would still reiterate that where possible residents should store waste safely at home in the first instance. In doing so residents will help us to continue to deliver this service effectively whilst the sites operate at a reduced capacity due to social distancing.”

The Council is continuing to work closely with the Waste Collection Authorities at the district and borough councils to ensure that residents continue to receive effective kerbside waste services. And as of 1 June, all our partners will be operating a full kerbside service.
