7 County Waste Sites to re-open

Plans being finalised for re-opening of seven county waste sites

The county council is putting the finishing touches to its plans to re-open seven of its recycling and household waste sites next week.

The selected sites will open seven days a week to county residents - with a booked appointment only - from Monday, 18th May. They are at Barwell, Lount, Market Harborough, Melton Mowbray, Mountsorrel, Oadby and Whetstone. More »

Seven other sites at Bottesford, Coalville, Loughborough, Lutterworth, Kibworth, Shepshed and Somerby remain closed for the time being.

From today (Thursday, 14th), an online booking system is also available by visiting
https://www.leicestershire.gov.uk/waste-bookings

The council is anticipating there will be a high level of demand for bookings and is reassuring residents that more slots will be made available over the coming weeks.

People are being asked to only bring what they cannot safely store at home for the time being, or if they cannot wait for their kerbside collection services, many of which are being reinstated by district councils

Social distancing will be in operation at the sites, and plans will also include traffic management arrangements. There will be parking restrictions in place around the immediate vicinity of the waste sites.

There will also be restrictions on the type of items people will be able to bring to county locations - so some waste types will still have to wait.

Councillor Trevor Pendleton, county council cabinet member for waste disposal, said: "I want to thank residents for their support around the measures which the council has taken to date, and would welcome their continued support to ensure the arrangements we are putting in place can operate successfully.

"We want our sites to work as efficiently as they can, while prioritising the health and safety of residents and our staff, so I would ask for patience during the first few days of operation.

"Please don't visit our sites, unless waste is creating an issue at home that could cause injury or harm – and you will need a confirmed booking to be allowed on to the site."

Ends

Residents will be able to register for an account

There will be a restriction on the number of visits to the sites, only one booking will be allowed over a 14-day period.
