Waste site updates
From Saturday 1 October opening hours for all recycling and household waste sites, on the days they are open, will be 9am to 4pm (last admittance 3.55pm). Please arrive at least 10 minutes before closing.
When you visit the site, you will be asked to show your waste permit, if you have one (either electronically or printed out) through the window of your vehicle.
We must be able to effectively communicate with you for health and safety purposes, to check we can accept the waste you have brought with you and to advise you where you need to go on site to access the containers to deposit your waste and recycling.
We will ensure we maintain social distancing during such times and your cooperation on this will be greatly appreciated.
Please ensure you maintain social distancing on site and follow the instructions of the site staff. Please also wear a face covering during your visit, if you can.
Yes, but from Monday 19 July only with an asbestos waste permit. Only household cement bonded asbestos is accepted and there are conditions and restrictions in place, and charges apply. Read the full details on the Apply for a waste permit page.
Cement bonded asbestos is accepted at the Coalville, Mountsorrel (from Monday 15 November 2021) and Whetstone sites only.
We would ask everyone to think before they go to a waste site about whether they really need to.
At the moment we are not able to recycle all the waste types we ordinarily would so, please use your kerbside bin collection services where possible or consider reusing and donating.
We’d like residents to think differently about how they deal with their waste, for example, if you have garden waste, think about investing in a compost bin or starting a compost heap at home. For more information and further tips on waste prevention please visit www.lesswaste.org.uk
