Recycling and household waste sites to stay open

According to Government guidance, our recycling and household waste sites should stay open from 5 November, where it's safe to do so.

We encourage you to only visit our sites, if it's essential, and you have booked an appointment to visit a site.

If you're wanting to visit a waste site, all information about the types of waste accepted at each site, as well as links to the booking system, are available on our recycling and household waste pages.
