As a result of COVID-19 changes have been made to the way you use the recycling centre. Please ensure you book before visiting.

We have had to change the way that some of our services operate to meet the guidelines set out by the government in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Before you visit the recycling centre you will need to book a slot online. It’s quick and easy and you will receive an email confirming the date and time for you to come to visit.

Book a slot to visit the recycling centre

If you are unable to attend your pre-booked slot, please cancel this using the link provided in the confirmation email received at the time of booking.

Currently, bookings are limited to two within a 28 day period. This has been put in place to monitor and identify commercial waste.

Please remember that visiting the HWRC during these times will be very different from what you are used to. As well as needing to book before you visit, please observe the following rules:

  • No more than 2 people per car
  • Stay two metres apart
  • You will need to dispose of your own waste at the HWRC - due to social distancing, the site staff cannot assist with unloading waste and recycling from vehicles.
  • Please respect our staff and keep your distance
  • Trailers are only allowed for garden waste

The recycling centre will be closed on Bank Holidays.

Please check what items should be taken to the HWRC now it has reopened.

Cars are allowed to visit Monday to Saturday.

Vans are allowed to visit Monday to Saturday. Please note vans can only bring the equivalent amount of waste that would fit inside a family car. They should not be used to bring commercial waste to the Recycling Centre.
