Temporary closure of waste site

Mountsorrel to open seven days a week as work at Loughborough starts

A recycling and household waste site

Loughborough's recycling and household waste site is to temporarily close next week for essential maintenance works.

The work is to take place over a 12-week period and the site is planned to close from the evening of Wednesday, 26th September 2018.

The closure will allow Leicestershire County Council to carry out necessary drainage work as well as maintenance to other areas within the Railway Terrace site.


We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this temporary closure will cause. We would encourage people to visit our website to find their closest alternative site, and to think about when they plan to visit, as nearby sites may be busier than usual.


Anyone wanting to use an alternative waste site during the closure period, can visit the nearby Mountsorrel site on Granite Way (LE12 7TZ) or the Shepshed  site on Hathern Road (LE12 9RP).

To minimise disruption, the Mountsorrel  facility will be open from 9am to 4pm, seven days a week for the duration of the closure. The Shepshed site will remain closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Permits for the Loughborough waste site will be accepted at both Mountsorrel and Shepshed during the closure.

To find the location and opening days and times for all 14 county council sites, visit or call 0116 305 0001.
