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 can be accepted at the Cannock, Stafford and Leek Recycling Centres.
  • We are able to accept donated items for reuse at all sites on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday. The restricted days are there to allow items to be stored for 72 hours before moving items to the reuse shop on Cannock Recycling Centre to be sold. Clothing is not currently being accepted for the reuse shop, please place these items in the clothing banks
  • No ‘walk-on’ pedestrians
  • Only one person per vehicle permitted to unload (site staff are unable to assist)
  • Social distancing measures are in place, please keep a safe distance of two metres where possible. Only one person at a time should be on the access ramps to the waste and recycling skips

These temporary restrictions are being reviewed and updated regularly, please check our website and social media for updates.  

Further information is provided on planning your visit and site rules to help you prepare for your visit.
