Recycling centres (tips) overview
Temporary waste acceptance, and access arrangements for recycling centres
Anyone who is self-isolating or has COVID-19 symptoms must not visit a Recycling centre.
If you have waste that you suspect or is contaminated with COVID-19 material, please double bag the waste and leave it for at least 72 hours before bringing it to the site.
Temporary changes to the waste you can bring
- Asbestos is not currently being accepted
- Donations for reuse are not currently being accepted.
- Trade waste is not being accepted at Burton, Lichfield or Biddulph.
- No ‘walk-on’ pedestrians.
- Only one person per vehicle permitted to unload (site staff are unable to assist)
- No trailers
- Vans which do not fit under the height barrier (6 foot 6 inches, or 2 meters) are not currently permitted at Burton or Lichfield as these sites remain very busy.
Site vehicle restrictions
These temporary restrictions are being reviewed and updated regularly, please check our website and social media for updates.
