Important information before you visit - new restrictions are in place

The Recycling Village is open (from Monday 11 May) following social distancing guidelines, with new restrictions in place.

We are temporarily introducing an odd and even number plate system to help us manage traffic and reduce queuing. This means you can visit the Recycling Village on certain days depending on your vehicle number plate.

Restrictions

To make sure that our facilities can operate within the guidelines, and to protect the safety of our staff and our residents, there are restrictions in place:

  • anyone in self isolation or with COVID-19 symptoms must not visit under any circumstances
  • if your household has had COVID-19 symptoms the waste should be left for 72 hours before being brought to site, and the waste should be double bagged
  • follow the new odd and even car number plate system to access the site to help manage traffic and reduce queuing
  • there are restrictions on types of waste you can bring 
  • only one person per car (two will be permitted from the same household if unloading heavy items)
  • only cars will be allowed, transit-type vans, vehicle trailers or commercial vehicles of any type will not be accepted
  • the permit system for vans, pick-ups and vehicles towing trailers is temporarily suspended
  • social distancing at 2 metres will be strictly enforced and staff cannot assist the public in unloading
  • traffic management will be in place at the site
  • sites will require regular cleaning down of surfaces and may need to temporarily close for this
  • you may be asked for your postcode and should be prepared to provide proof if requested
  • you should wash your hands before and after visiting sites and avoid touching your face
  • the Recycling Village shop and clothing banks will remain closed until further notice

What waste can I bring?

  • bagged general household waste
  • garden waste
  • cardboard
  • wood and bulky waste such as old furniture
  • small domestic appliances (eg vacuum cleaners, toasters, kettles, microwaves, lawnmowers etc.)
  • TVs
  • small fridges (those that do not need help from site operatives)

No soil, rubble or plasterboard.

Odd and even number plate system

We expect our Recycling Village will be extremely busy. We are temporarily introducing an odd and even number plate system to help us manage traffic and reduce queuing. This means you can visit the Recycling Village on certain days depending on your vehicle number plate.

How it works

If the last number of your vehicle plate is 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8 this is an even number plate.

Examples of even number plates:

RL34 JGS

The last number is 4.

Registration plate 1

V952 GHD

The last number is 2.

Registration plate 2

PRIV8 A0

The last number is 0.

Registration plate 3




If the last number of your vehicle number plate is 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9 this is an odd number plate.

Examples of odd number plates:

GJ25 HJK

The last number is 5.

Registration plate 4

Y247 NJF

The last number is 7.

Registration plate 5

PRIV8 A3

The last number is 3.

Registration plate 6
