Nottinghamshire County Council offers waste centre lockdown warning

Nottinghamshire County Council’s waste team is reminding residents that the county’s 12 recycling centres remain open, but only for items that can not be stored safely at home until after lockdown ends.

Mick Allen, group manager for place commissioning, place and communities, said: “We have noticed an increasing number of people are visiting the sites, which is resulting in queueing at busy times.

“I’d like to remind residents that we are currently in a national lockdown and people should only be taking waste to the recycling centres if absolutely necessary and the waste cannot be stored safely at home or disposed of through the regular kerbside services.

“All our recycling centres are currently open 8am to 6pm, which will extend to 8am to 8pm from April 1, so people will have more time to dispose of their waste at the sites once lockdown eases.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to say thank you to local people who have worked with us during these challenging times and also to the staff who are working hard to keep the sites open and running.”
