We ask that you only make a trip if you are unable to store your additional waste at home.

The health of residents and staff is always the highest priority, so everyone visiting the reopened sites will be expected to observe the new social distancing measures that have been put in place.

Cllr Stimson, lead member for environmental services, climate change, sustainability, parks and countryside, said: “I am delighted that officers have been able to open Stafferton Way for our residents.

“I appreciate that the recent changes to waste collection has been challenging but we hope this will ease some of the pressures with the extra waste that has been collected during the lockdown period. Please do only visit if you cannot store your waste safely at home.

“Whilst the team have worked really hard to get the tip open, there are a few guidelines in place to protect, you, our residents as well as our staff. Please do follow their advice if you decide to visit the centre. We want to make sure everyone remains safe.

“To ensure we manage the queues that we anticipate, please do follow the timetable for when you are able to visit the site and please do bring proof of address as well as your advantage card, if you have one. This will help speed the process up of allowing you into the site.

“We will also have to limit the number of visitors to the site as well as what materials we can accept. Staff will be on hand to ensure that the social distancing guidelines are adhered to, therefore we urge all visitors to be patient and leave plenty of time for their visit.

Things to remember when visiting the Stafferton Way site:

  • You should only visit the site if you cannot safely store your waste at home.
  • Both sites will be open.
  • We will accept garden waste, wood, cardboard, bulky items and black household waste.
  • You will need to observe the social distancing measures in place.
  • Staff are unable to help you move waste from your vehicle.
  • White goods (washing machine, refrigerator, etc.), plasterboard, clothes and paint will not be accepted at this time as the disposal routes required for these are still currently closed.
  • Only cars will be allowed on the site.
  • Place Advantage card and driving licence or proof of address on your dashboard for crews to see.
  • There will be limits on the number of vehicles allowed on site to allow for social distancing. There may be delays accessing the site and possibly queues of waiting vehicles.
  • In line with Public Health England guidance, residents who are vulnerable, or who are showing symptoms which may indicate coronavirus, should not visit household recycling centres.

We ask residents to please read the full details carefully, ensuring that they visit on the correct day, and limit their visits to one per day. In the event that the queues are too large, the site may have to close temporarily to deal with the demand.
