Bin collections and recycling centres operational during lockdown

Bin collections in Sheffield will continue as normal and all five Household Waste Recycling Centres will remain open during the national lockdown. 

Sites are open between 10 am and 4 pm, and you can check opening days here.

Usage of sites has been high throughout the pandemic, and it is expected that this demand will continue. It is critical that the following instructions are adhered to:

  1. Always listen and be courteous to our staff
  2. Do not queue outside the sites as this may cause potential danger for other road users trying to pass.  Drivers will initially be asked to move on by the site staff, and failure to do so will result in a £70 Penalty Charge Notice being issued.
  3. Sheffield City Council and Veolia will not tolerate any physical or verbal threats to its workforce, and all such incidents will be reported to the Police, and the sites may be closed.

We share queuing times for the sites throughout the day and advise residents to check the current queuing times before travelling to a site, on our Twitter page
