With the social distancing measures in place at Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) for the safety of staff and customers, our capacity for customers has been significantly reduced.  Service demand continues to be high and there are regularly queues outside our sites.


It will take Veolia two weeks to implement each of these increased opening requirements (starting with 9am opening).
