Recycling centres during Covid-19: frequently asked questions

Although restrictions have currently been removed and Recycling Centres have changed accordingly, Covid-19 has not gone away and residents should still feel free to wear masks and keep socially distanced if they feel safer or more comfortable doing so whilst on site.

Are all of the recycling centres in Notts open?

Yes, all recycling centres in Nottinghamshire are open.

Please note, if you are attending to visit the West Bridgford site you will still need to book an appointment in advance.

Don’t forget that you need to be a resident of Nottinghamshire (excluding Nottingham City) and have registered your vehicle to use the Nottinghamshire recycling centres – it’s quick and easy to register.

What times are the sites open?

All sites are open 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week.

Sites may still have to close temporarily during the course of their opening to allow for cleaning, or for the changing of containers.

The site may be operating under minimal staffing levels and so to ensure the safety of the site and its users, may also need to close to give staff opportunities to rest. Our operatives are working hard to keep the site running.

If you are visiting the recycling centre towards the end of the day, please allow yourself plenty of time to ensure you are allowed into the site. All vehicles need to have entered the site, unloaded their waste and left the site by closing time at 8pm.

I need help with my waste – can I get assistance from a member of staff?

Yes, staff can now assist where needed  but during this assistance both yourself and member of staff will need to wear a face covering. This can be removed after you have been assisted if you wish.

I don’t have a vehicle; can I access the sites on foot?

In order to attend on foot you will need to arrange a time by calling our customer services on 0300 500 80 80. This will allow the site staff to know when to expect you and for a member of staff to escort you onto the site from the entrance as they are primarily designed for use by motor vehicles.  

I / my household have been self-isolating - can I take my waste to the recycling centre?

No - if you are self-isolating or have any Covid symptoms you should not attend the recycling centres.
