Refuse and Recycling Service
Household Recycling Centres - Booking System
Warwickshire County Council has confirmed that it will be operating a booking system to ensure that social distance can be safely maintained when the majority of its Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) reopen on Monday (May 18). The council announced its plans to reopen all HWRCs except those at Stockton, Shipston and Wellesbourne last week. Reuse shops will not reopen at this time. In order to do so safely while maintaining safe social distancing, officers will need to control the number of vehicles on site at any one time, so customers are being asked to book a 15 minute slot via an Eventbrite link on the council website at https://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/hwrc
Car registrations will be checked before arrival at the site entrance. Any vehicles that have not booked a time slot will be asked to drive on without being allowed into the site. It is therefore important that customers make sure to use the same car that was registered in the booking. Customers are also being urged to consider whether their trip is absolutely essential and should only visit HWRCs if the waste cannot ‘be safely stored at home and is presenting a hazard' in line with Government guidance. Customers should expect differences in traffic management arrangements around the site entrances and differences within the sites in terms of parking layout and container availability. Pre-sorting waste will mean a faster and safer visit to the site.
