Coronavirus: Recycling centres advice

Posted onPosted on 23rd Mar

Nottinghamshire County Council said all 12 of its recycling centres across the county remain open as usual.

A spokesman said: “Please protect yourself, other residents and the site staff by adhering to the Government advice on social distancing – stay at least 2m apart from others if visiting.

“Where possible, everyone should be staying at home.”

Centres are allowing only five cars on site at any one time.

The spokesman added: “We ask all our residents to be patient if there are delays or queues at any of our recycling centres. We’ve got to look after each other during this challenging time.”

Waste disposal advice for households that are self isolating

Households that are self-isolating should follow the UK Government’s ‘Stay at Home’ advice, which states:

Store personal waste such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths securely within disposable rubbish bags.
Place these bags into another bag, tie securely and keep separate from other waste.
These bags should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put in your usual external general waste bin.
Please do not take this waste to your local recycling centre.
Please dispose of your other household waste as normal.

The spokesman added: “It is more important than ever to ensure that recycling is clean and dry, and that rubbish bags are all securely tied to help prevent spills and protect our collection teams and the public.”
