Oldham recycling centres all CLOSED until further notice

People should still put their bins out as normal and report all missed collections, RMBC said.

Cornwall Council last week issued new advice for households which have had possible Coronavirus infections and how to deal with their waste.

Other rubbish and recycling collections are operating as normal, however, due to staff shortages, the council is warning that they may need to suspend some services at short notice. This includes gardening (unless you home-compost), large DIY jobs or house clearances. If you do have excess waste, keep it stored safely until the HRCs reopen.

Continue to keep rubbish and recycling separated. "Commercial residual waste will continue based on the current arrangements and Mavis Valley Recycling Centre will be closed".

West Sussex County Council runs 11 Household Waste Recycling Sites where residents are able to dispose of bulky unwanted items and materials. You should not however compress rubbish in black bags, your black wheelie bin or authorised blue sack.

"Please note that kerbside collections of waste and recycling continue, so please place your bags and recycling out for your usual collection times".

Park responsibly. More people staying at home has obviously led to more cars parked on residential streets, creating problems for waste drivers who can not access some roads.

Carron McDiarmid, executive chief officer for communities and place, said: "While we are doing our best to maintain our regular waste and recycling collections, we need to be realistic and plan for staff shortages". To help avoid this, Dorset residents should recycle correctly, minimise the waste they produce and observe health guidance if they have symptoms of COVID-19.
