New trial online booking system for West Bridgford Recycling Centre

17 August 2020

Nottinghamshire County Council has today announced a new trial online booking system for residents needing to visit the household waste recycling centre on Rugby Road in West Bridgford which will start from 1 September 2020.

Councillor Phil Rostance, Vice Chairman of the Communities and Place Committee at the County Council said: “When we reopened the site back in June we implemented temporary traffic management arrangements to minimise the queues on Rugby Road due to a number of road safety concerns. However, since Covid restrictions have been relaxed further, and local businesses and facilities have reopened, including the Rushcliffe Arena, maintaining this temporary traffic management solution is no longer possible.

“We have listened to the concerns of local families and the wider community and will instead trial an online booking system to control visits to the site in a safe and managed way. Safety is our number one concern and I’d like to thank all users of the site for working with us during these difficult times.”

The West Bridgford recycling centre will be accepting pre booked vehicles only from 1 September 2020. Pre booked 15-minute time slots will start at 8:15am and run until 7:45pm every day during the summer opening hours, with five vehicles allowed on site at any one time.

Residents must already be registered to use Nottinghamshire County Council’s recycling centres, booking a slot will be easy through the Councils online portal using your existing details. Slots will be bookable two weeks in advance, but we request residents do not make multiple bookings, and use other sites where they need to visit more than once in any two-week period.

Only the West Bridgford recycling centre will need to be pre booked, and residents can carry on using any of the Council’s 11 other sites without an appointment. Those sites are currently open 8.00am to 8.00pm seven days a week.

Slots at West Bridgford must be booked 24 hours in advance, so no same day slots will be available. Without an electronic or paper copy of your emailed booking receipt you will not be allowed access to site.

Social distancing measures remain in place on site and for further information and for details on how to book please visit www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/booktorecycle or telephone the Council’s customer service centre on 0300 500 8080 between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday.
