Please be aware that if there are queuing vehicles towards closing time, site staff will notify any vehicles that may not be able to gain access and stop additional vehicles from joining the queue.

The entrance gates may be closed prior to the site closing time, in order to allow for any remaining vehicles to vacate the site before closure. 

Essential groundwork repairs will take place at Johnsons Lane Recycling Centre from Tuesday 3rd May to Friday 13th May.

We aim to keep disruption to a minimum, but during the works there may be some relocation of containers and a reduction in the number of containers available. 

Signs will show relocated containers or ask a member of staff to direct you. To avoid possible disruption please use Picow Farm Recycling Centre as an alternative.
