Nottinghamshire Recycling Centres operated by Veolia (Nottinghamshire County Council’s waste contractors) are open as usual over the Easter Bank Holiday. With the weather starting to brighten up, it’s time to open the cupboards, dust off those wellies, and get cracking with some spring cleaning and gardening!
The Recycling Centres are open from 8am to 6pm in March and switch to longer opening hours, 8am to 8pm from April to September. The sites accept a wide range of household waste for recycling; including textiles, glass bottles and jars, wood, scrap metal, batteries, garden waste, electrical appliances and even engine oil and cooking oil. With the help of Nottinghamshire householders, on average an impressive 80% of the waste received is recycled.
Top tips to remember when visiting your local Recycling Centre:
• Recycling Centres can be busy over the bank holidays, please be patient if visiting during a peak time.
• A visit will be quicker if waste is sorted into groups of waste types. If a mixed bag of waste is taken to a site the staff will open it to further sort and recycle what’s inside.
• All residents require a permit to access the site, register for free at www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/waste-and-recycling/recycling-centres
• There are no limits to the amount visits that can be made to a Recycling Centre as long as it is to dispose of your own Household Waste.
• Sensible footwear must be worn when visiting the Recycling Centres and waste must be placed into skips carefully to avoid injury.
• Children and animals must stay in vehicles at all times.
• If assistance is needed, please ask a member of staff.
