Bins and recycling

Our household waste and recycling centres are now open following social distancing guidelines.

Journeys to waste sites are only allowed under the lockdown restrictions if the waste materials cannot be stored at home without causing risk of injury or harm to health. To make sure that our facilities can operate within the guidelines, and to protect the safety of our staff and our residents, there are restrictions in place.
