Further to the government's recent measures to control the spread of COVID-19 all Household Recycling Centres in Herefordshire are closed for the next three weeks at least: Bromyard, Hereford, Kington, Ledbury, Leominster, Ross-on-Wye.
Closures are also in effect in Worcestershire so Malvern and Tenbury Household Recycling Centres are also closed.
The household collection service continues to be provided as normal, but please check this website regularly for updates.
Please remember to:
Stay at home - in accordance with government advice no one should be making any unnecessary journeys.
Manage garden waste at home - we must all change our normal behaviours, there are simple things we can all do to manage garden waste at home:
Cut and drop - don't collect grass cuttings unless you intend to use them for home composting, simply cut the grass without the collector on.
Create a compost heap - whatever the size of your garden you should have space for a heap. If not, use a low cost home composter to keep the garden tidy.
DIY waste - store your DIY waste responsibly until restrictions are lifted.
New appliances. Request that the supplier takes back the old appliance wherever possible.
General waste - with many stores struggling to keep up with demand for groceries and everyday household items please PLAN your meals to reduce waste. Store perishable food in the freezer wherever possible.
Do not burn your waste - burning most wastes is illegal. Store any waste that cannot be collected safely until restrictions are lifted.
