Visiting a recycling centre (tip) - Covid19 information


You do not need to book an appointment to use one of our tips. Please follow National guidance for visiting a household waste recycling centre when visiting our sites and be aware that there may be long wait times. 

Check how busy your recycling centre is

Check our handy map on our Recycling centres (tips) page to see how busy the recycling centres are and which centres are open and closed. Use this to plan your visit or consider visiting another recycling centre.

How we're keeping our sites Covid-secure

Sites are reviewed every day and the service will only continue to be provided if this is considered safe, both for the public, and for people working at the site. 

What you need to do when you visit

Please ensure that you:

  • wash hands before and after your visit
  • respect other people's space during your visit
  • do not visit if you are unwell and have symptoms

We provide assistance with heavy or bulky items to the elderly and disabled at all sites. Ask a member of staff on site for assistance.
