The entrance to Kidderminster HRC Published Wednesday, 22nd July 2020

Kidderminster Household Recycling Centre will be re-opening on Monday 27th July.

A booking system will be in place on site to help minimise queuing and the impact this will have on the local businesses and surrounding roads.

Bookings must be made prior to visiting the site via the County Council website and appointments will be made available to book from today.

Access to the site will not be permitted without a booking and no pedestrian access is allowed.

To make a booking, please visit the Council's dedicated page for the Kidderminster Household Recycling Centre.

Councillor Tony Miller, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for the Environment, said: “I’m pleased that we are now in a position where we can re-open Kidderminster Household Recycling Centre. The booking system has been put in place to help ensure that people are able to use the site safely and so that we can keep the impact on local businesses and the local road network down to a minimum.

“Please ensure that you make a booking and are aware of the current social distancing restrictions before visiting the site.”

The site will be open from 8am to 5pm, with the last appointment available at 4:45pm.

Strict social distancing measures will be in place as they are at all of Worcestershire’s ach Household Recycling Centres.

The social distancing measures at the sites will mean that staff cannot provide assistance, so make sure you are able to unload your waste unaided. 

Those who are self-isolating or anyone in their household, showing Covid-19 symptoms must not visit a Household Recycling Centre.

The Council is asking anyone who may need to visit any of the county’s Household Recycling Centres to look online at the restrictions that will be in place and to check opening hours, before they visit.
Full details of the restrictions currently in place at Household Recycling Centres across Worcestershire can be found on the Let’s Waste Less website.
