Visiting the recycling centre

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 that are 2 meters or less in length can be used to bring waste or recycling to the site. Where a trailer is used you can only bring the equivalent amount of waste that would fit inside a family car. A trailer attached to a vehicle, where both the trailer and the vehicle are carrying waste will not be accepted.
