Which vehicles can visit

The Recycling Village is open during the national lockdown from 5 November 2020.

From Wednesday 18 November, you can visit the Recycling Village if you have a large van between 8.30am to 10.30am. You will need a permit. The odd and even vehicle number plate system will still apply.
