HOUSEHOLD RECYCLE CENTRES
All 10 of Wilts Council Household Recycle Centres (HRCs) are now open, with access controlled by an online booking system in order to limit numbers on site to enable social distancing.
Details are at http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/household-recycling-centres. Bookings may be made up to 3 days in advance and 2 visits per month are permitted.
Opening times for each HRC vary; our local HRCs are open as follows:
- Amesbury + Marlborough: 9am-4pm; Mon, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun. Closed Tue + Wed
- Devizes: 9am-4pm; Mon, Tue, Wed, Sat, Sun.; Closed Thu + Fri.
Residents may be asked for proof of address, eg driving licence, council tax bill.
All of Wiltshire’s household recycling centres (HRCs), bar Stanton St Quintin, will reopen on Monday 18 May with an easy to use postcode entry system to system to help limit the number of people on site at any time and ensure social distancing.
See attached for when your post code can visit HRCs.
People will only be allowed entry to visit Wiltshire’s HRCs on the days that correspond to the first part of their postcode.
For example, if their postcode starts in BA12, they can only visit the sites on Monday 18 May, Wednesday 20 May, and so on, as detailed in the table on the council’s website.
People can visit any Wiltshire site they choose, so while people are limited by the days they can attend, they can visit any Wiltshire HRC on these days. Residents are reminded to check the opening times before setting off as all of the sites have different opening times. People may be asked to provide a proof of address in order to use the household recycling centre.
Journeys to HRCs should only be undertaken if waste or recycling cannot be stored at home safely or disposed of safely by other means, this includes kerbside recycling collections and the bulky waste collections service. Residents are able to leave additional recycling at the kerbside provided it is separated properly and placed in sturdy containers. People can find out more by visiting http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/rubbish-and-recycling.
To keep staff and residents safe, there are a significant number of changes in place to ensure social distancing at all HRCs. These changes include:
• Visitors must keep at least two metres from others at all times
• Only one person allowed on bin access steps at any one time
• Visits are restricted to one person per car
• No entry for trailers or large vans over 3.5 tonnes
• The number of parking spaces on each site will be significantly reduced, with vehicles allowed on site on a ‘one in, one out’ basis.
• There will be no pedestrian access
• HRCs cannot accept soil, rubble, plasterboard, textiles or asbestos during this initial reopening phase
• Don’t bring recyclable materials that can be collected through the council’s kerbside recycling collection service
Most of Wiltshire’s 10 household recycling centres (HRCs) in Wiltshire will reopen for essential waste only from Monday 18 May.
Due to the limits on the number of vehicles on site, Stanton St Quintin HRC will remain closed until further notice. All other HRCs will have different opening hours from usual, therefore it is advised that residents check before they travel. Full details on opening times at each HRC will be available later in the week.Continue reading Wiltshire household recycling centres to reopen
