Household waste recycling centres have reopened.

Changes have been made, these include:

  • limiting the number of vehicles
  • introducing social distancing measures
  • traffic maybe diverted along alternative routes or entrances (see individual centres for details)

Sites are open 8am – 5pm every day except for Thursdays when they are open until 8pm.  When there are long waiting times to enter the HWRC staff may close the queue earlier than the advertised closing time based on an assessment of the queue time, If you have queued near to closing time you may continue to queue off the highway, but please be aware that you may not gain entry when the gates close at 5pm (8pm on Thursdays).
