Important information

New weekend opening hours at Community Recycling Centres

From 04 December 2021, the weekend opening hours for the CRCs will revert to 9:00am to 4:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The earlier opening hours were introduced as a temporary measure to alleviate queueing caused by social distancing measures and are no longer necessary.

Coronavirus Community Recycling Centre update November 2021

We have resumed offering assistance for the elderly, disabled and infirm but ask that site staff and residents, unless exempted, wear a face covering for the protection of both parties. If you require assistance, please contact a member of site staff when you arrive on site.

We ask that all visitors remain vigilant to the virus and respect the personal space of others while on site. In line with Government advice we would continue to suggest wearing a mask when visiting, as the sites can get crowded during busy periods.
