Two more Household Recycling Centres to open

Published Wednesday, 27th May 2020

Two more of Worcestershire’s Household Recycling Centres (HRC’s) will be re-opening this week, bringing the number operating across the county to nine.

The Household Recycling Centres in both Droitwich and Worcester West (Hallow) will re-open on Thursday 28th May.

Many residents have visited since the successful and safe reopening of seven out of eleven HRC’s across the county earlier this month.

However, due to new social distancing measures fewer visitors are allowed on site at any one time, so cars are having to queue to get into the sites.

Councillor Tony Miller, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for the Environment, said: “I’m pleased that we’ve managed to open another two of our Household Recycling Centres. I’d like to take the opportunity to remind people to please be patient when visiting, and to check the Let’s Waste Less website before travelling due to restrictions that are in place, across all of our operating sites.  

While the doors to two further HRC’s are opening, things will not be running as they were before the lockdown was brought in due to the social distancing measures that remain in place.”
