Six more recycling and household waste sites in Leicestershire will start to re-open from this week.
Bottesford, near Melton Mowbray, will be the first of those, on Thursday (30 July), with time slots now available to book online.
Glenfield and Birstall libraries are also offering a ‘click and collect’ service after the lockdown boundary was reduced, ahead of most town centre libraries set to re-open from Monday, 3rd August for browsing, borrowing and returning items only, also through booking a time slot.
Although most of Leicestershire is now in line with national restrictions, residents are urged to keep on observing social distancing, get a test if they have symptoms, wear a face covering where required and wash their hands regularly.
More services are up and running, which is good news. And, where it’s safe to do to, we’ll continue to re-open them. With national restrictions changing, and the current lockdown rules still applying in Oadby and Wigston, I’d encourage people to check our website for the latest details.
Whatever phase we’re in, we must make social distancing, good hand hygiene and spotting the symptoms a new way of lifePerson:Nick Rushton, leader of Leicestershire County Council
The council is also working hard to re-open other services over the coming weeks, including children and family wellbeing centres, day services for older and vulnerable people as well as visitor attractions including Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre and market town museums.
