Household Recycling Centres Update

Wiltshire Council have received a lot of enquiries regarding the reopening of its’ household recycling centres (HRCs). They are continuing to monitor government advice closely and are looking at ways to safely reopen HRCs at some stage in the future.

When HRCs are reopened, you can expect some significant changes at the sites to keep staff and residents safe, including social distancing measures. Wiltshire Council are also likely to include a limit to the number of people and vehicles that can enter a site and they may reduce the amount of material types that people can dispose of.

There are 10 HRCs in Wiltshire, and each one presents its’ own challenges – particularly in terms of traffic management both inside and outside the gates – so what’s right for one site may not be right for another.

When the sites do reopen, Wiltshire Council are anticipating very long queues, so if you can store your waste safely, or can put your recycling in the usual kerbside collections, it is strongly recommend that you do so. If you have large or bulky items, Wiltshire Council are still collecting these from homes for a small charge; to find out more please follow this link: www.wiltshire.gov.uk/large-item-collection.

Wiltshire Council will produce an update on the plans soon, including details of any amended restrictions to be put in place.
