Household Waste and Recycling Centres
Latest COVID 19 Update
Nottinghamshire County Council have opened the Giltbrook Recycling Centre from Monday 1st June.
The sites will remain open to cars only for now, however all recycling centres across the county will open for longer – from 8am to 6pm, 7 days a week.
There are two Household Waste and Recycling Centres in Broxtowe:
Lilac Grove, Beeston, NG9 1PF
Gilthill, Giltbrook, NG16 2HR
Social distancing will be enforced and a strict one car in, one car out system will be in place. Household waste recycling centres will reopen to vans, trailers and pickups.
All the sites will be running a reduced service and only the following materials can be taken:
• garden waste,
• waste electrical and electronic equipment
• general waste
Staff will be onsite, but they will be unable to help unload due to social distancing. Residents are reminded that if they have coronavirus symptoms, are self-isolating or at a high risk of contracting the virus they should not travel to the sites.
Please read the following essential travel and safety guidelines for Household Waste & Recycling Centres
To ensure the safety of workers and residents, strict social distancing will be enforced and a one car in, one car out policy will be in place at all sites - no trailers, vans or pick-ups will be permitted.
- Recycling centres are only open for waste that you can’t store safely at home without causing a risk of injury, health or harm. No other reason for the journey would be considered a legitimate purpose.
- Please continue to use kerbside waste and recycling services and hang on to any items you would normally take to recycling centres for a few more weeks. Or if there’s still some life left in them, why not try selling online or compost garden waste at home.
- Avoid bringing excessive amounts of waste so people can get in and out as quickly as possible to help reduce queue times.
- Be prepared to queue – fewer vehicles than usual will be allowed on-site at any one time to allow for social distancing.
- Stay in your vehicle while queuing to aid with social distancing. Please do not leave your vehicle until it is necessary to get out.
- Stay safe – wear protective gloves, appropriate footwear and clothing and only bring what you can safely handle as staff will not be able to help you carry your waste as they normally would.
- Keep your distance – please stay at least two metres away from staff and other users.
- Please do not visit if you have coronavirus symptoms in the last 14 days, are self-isolating or at high risk of contracting the virus.
- Remember to wash your hands when you get home.
The sites will also be running a reduced service and only the following waste can be taken:
- garden waste
- waste electrical and electronic equipment
- general waste
You are advised to only make the journey if you cannot store your waste safely at home.
