Covid-19: Waste and Recycling Services

If you have suspected or confirmed Coronavirus and are self-isolating, you need to double bag your used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths and wait 72 hours before putting it out for collection. For more information visit our page here.

Our Household Recycling Centres are still open as normal, although bookings are required.

To book or for further details, visit our HRC Bookings page. Social distancing is required on site.
