Recycling centres in Surrey and Hampshire due to reopen today

Published by Grace Mcgachy at 6:55am 11th May 2020.

Some recycling centres are set to reopen in Surrey and Hampshire this morning after being shut since lockdown was announced in March. 

However new regulations have been put in place to keep staff and residents safe. 

Some smaller sites in Surrey will remain closed. 

 

Rules for using Surrey's recycling centres: 

  • Staff and visitors must obey social distancing at all times- all site users must adhere to the two metre social distancing rules
  • Only one person per vehicle should travel to the site- only one person will be allowed outside their vehicles once they have arrived at the recycling centre 
  • You must remain in your vehicles while queuing 
  • No help will be given by staff to remove items from your vehicle so only bring what you can carry.
  • Do not visit the site if you are self-isolating
  • If anyone in your household has had COVID-19 symptoms waste must be left for 72 hours before being brought to the site and it should be double bagged
  • During the first reopening phase you can only bring black bag waste and garden waste
  • You must bring your waste in a car - no vans, pickups or trailers will be allowed into the sites

The sites at Bagshot, Caterham, Cranleigh, Dorking, Warlingham are staying shut. 

Rules for using Hampshire's recycling centres: 

  • The sites should only be used for the essential disposal of waste- meaning storing such waste could cause injury or damage someone's health 
  • Residents who are recognised as vulnerable by the government are advised not to visit a recycling centre 
  • A limited number of vehicles will be allowed to access the site
  • Staff at the entrance of each site will be wearing a body camera 
  • Security staff will be there at all times- there is a zero-tolerance approach to abuse 
  • New temporary barriers will be in place at the entrance to each site and used to mark out new parking arrangements with site staff guiding vehicles, from a safe distance, into spaces
  • Where possible only one person per household should visit a recycling centre 
  • No help will be given by staff to remove items from your vehicle so only bring what you can carry
  • Trailers are not permitted
  • Vans should only bring the same amount of waste that would fit in an average car boot
  • Everyone must always keep at least a two-metre distance from others at all times
  • Sites will accept all waste except for chargeable waste – soil, rubble, asbestos and plasterboard 
  • Do not visit the site if you are self-isolating
  • If anyone in your household has had COVID-19 symptoms waste must be left for 72 hours before being brought to the site and it should be double bagged

Residents are asked to only visit the recycling centres if essential.
