Protecting yourself and others

The booking system is in place to keep site visitors and staff safe. Nevertheless, if you are concerned about your health, then do not visit.

We expect that this is going to be a very busy period for recycling centres. The booking system will make sure that we stay within Government advice on social distancing but still provide you with an efficient service.

Social distancing

In addition to the booking system, measures are in place on-site to maintain social distancing. Please observe site signage and staff instructions to keep safe.

To protect our site staff, we are asking that you respect 2 metres social distancing while on site. Unfortunately, this means that staff will not be able to assist you by carrying large or heavy items. If you have a question staff are happy to help while observing social distancing. 

Changes to the site layout

There will be some changes to the site layout. The most noticeable will be that parking places will be in a different place and spaces will be coned off to allow for social distancing.

  • Only park in allocated bays.
  • You must not cross or move barriers.
  • Please follow the signs and staff instructions.

Other safety requirements

  • Contaminated waste (such as tissues or face masks) from a household with a possible infection must be quarantined at home for at least 72 hours prior to visit and double bagged.
  • Avoid touching surfaces unless absolutely necessary.
  • Please wash your hands before loading your car and again before setting out on your journey.
  • Do not touch your face and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds after visiting.

Thank you in advance for your patience. Staff are working hard in difficult circumstances to keep sites operating. Please treat our staff with respect.
