Bromsgrove Household Recycling Centre will be re-opening on Saturday 25th July following its closure earlier in the week.
A booking system will be in place for part of the week during the busier times to help reduce congestion and the impact queues may have on surrounding businesses.
You will need to pre-book vehicles on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays as these are our busier times. The remaining days, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will be open as normal with no pre-booking required.
The number of booking slots available will be limited on these days so that social distancing measures can be maintained and queuing traffic on the highway avoided.
To make a booking, please visit the Council’s dedicated page for the Bromsgrove Household Recycling Centre.
Councillor Tony Miller, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for the Environment, said: “I’m pleased that we are now able to re-open the Bromsgrove Household Recycling Centre following its closure earlier in the week. The booking system has been put into place to ensure visits to the centre remain as safe as possible and so that the impact to local highways and businesses is minimal.
“Please ensure when you visit during the busier periods, you have pre-booked and that all drivers visiting the centre are considerate towards other drivers and highways users. Please also be aware of the latest restrictions that are in place prior to your visit.”
The Bromsgrove Household Recycling Centre is open Monday – Sunday, 8am – 5pm with the last available appointment being at 4:45pm. Please arrive as near to your booked time slot as possible. Staff may attempt to allow some leeway but arriving outside of your time slot may mean you are denied entry. You will need to display your pass generated by the booking system either in print or digital format upon entering the centre.
Strict social distancing measures will be maintained throughout, meaning staff will not be available to provide you with any assistance in unloading your waste.
Those who are showing any symptoms of COVID-19 should not visit their local Recycling Centre. For the latest guidance on COVID-19 measures, please visit the Worcestershire County Council’s Coronavirus Information Page.
The Council is asking anyone who may need to visit any of the county’s Household Recycling Centres to check online the restrictions that will be in place and to confirm opening times prior to their visit. Full details on restrictions currently in place at Household Recycling Centres can be found on the Let’s Waste Less website.
