HWRCs return to normal opening hours from 8 June

From 8 June, both sites return to their usual opening hours of 9am to 5pm (Mon-Fri) and 8am to 5pm at weekends.

Leigh Marshes  will be closed on Wednesdays and Stock Road on Thursdays. Check the webcams here  before your visit.

Usual restrictions on ‘Commercial Type vehicles’ apply – Sundays only between 12 noon and 4pm. 

Make sure your visit is essential.  There are  likely to be long traffic queues – particularly on Sundays - so please avoid this day and only visit the sites if your household waste really needs to go to the recycling centre right now. Don’t visit if self-isolating.

Follow site and staff instructions. Social distancing measures remain in place for your safety. Anyone who does not will be asked to leave the site immediately.

Please visit Southend Borough Council's website for more information and have a look at our FAQs before you visit.
