Nottinghamshire County Council is working on preparations to safely reopen six of its 12 Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) from Monday 18 May.
Beeston, Bilsthorpe, Calverton, Hucknall, Newark and Worksop HWRCs (managed by Veolia) will reopen seven days a week 10am – 6pm apart from Newark which will be open 10am -4pm to avoid causing additional congestion on the Brunel Drive Industrial Estate and around the A1/A46/A17 junctions during the evening traffic peak. This will be the first phase of reopening while plans to re-open the remaining sites are underway.
Strict social distancing will be enforced and a one car in one car out system will be employed; no trailers or vans will be permitted.
The sites will be running a reduced service and only the following materials can be taken:
Staff will be onsite, but they will be unable to help unload due to social distancing. Residents are reminded that if they have coronavirus symptoms, are self-isolating or at a high risk of contracting the virus they should not travel to the sites,
