Surrey County Council 'finalising plans' to reopen recycling centres

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 2:35pm 1st May 2020.

Work is underway to allow a "phased reopening" of Surrey's tips, but the county council is yet to announce a date for when that would happen.

The council said it was still finalising plans, but that when reopened sites would "accept fewer types of waste" - though opening hours would be extended.

Yesterday (30 April) Hampshire County Council said it hoped to reopen its recycling centres the week beginning 11 May.

Both local authorities stated that social distancing measures would be in place for the safety of staff and visitors after the centres were shut because of the coronavirus.

In a statement Surrey County Council said:

“We are currently finalising our plans which will see a phased reopening of our community recycling centre service.

“There will be social distancing measures in place and limits to the number of people on each site, which is essential to protect visitors and staff.

“The sites are also likely to accept fewer types of waste but with extended opening hours where possible to help as many residents to access the sites each day.

“We will do this as soon as we can, and in line with government guidance.”

The council said it would post any updates on its website.
