Potters Recycling Centre will be reopening for the first time in two months next week, and council chiefs say it will return straight away to five days a week.

The facility is expected to be in demand, and the advice is not to rush back in the opening days, but it is set to open at 9am next Wednesday (May 27).

It will then be open Wednesday-Sunday, as per pre-Covid-19 restrictions, from 9am-5pm weekdays and 10am-4pm at the weekend.

Newtown’s facility is also reopening on Monday.

 The following changes and restrictions will apply at all sites:

1.    If you, or anyone in your household has coronavirus symptoms, you should follow government and NHS guidelines, self-Isolate and stay at home! Do not visit the HWRC. Any personal waste, such as tissues or wipes, should be double bagged and left for 72 hours before being put out for collection in our wheeled bin or purple sacks.

2.    You may be asked to provide proof of your address before entering the site – please have this with you and show it to a member of staff when asked.

3.    Only cars will be allowed into the HWRCs. Initially, no trade permits, or commercial vehicles or trailers permits will be allowed. This also helps to assist with managing demand, enforcing social distancing rules and controlling traffic levels. This will be continually under review and changed when appropriate.

4.    A limited number of cars will be allowed onsite at any time – this will cause delays, please be prepared to queue patiently in your car. If there are too many people waiting to enter, you may be asked to return at a quieter time to avoid causing disruption to the highway and local communities.

5.    Strict social distancing rules will be in place at all times. If these are breached, or you are abusive to staff, you will be asked to leave, and the police may be called.

6.    Where possible, there should only be one person per vehicle. Only one person is allowed to leave the vehicle to unload - this means that you can only take things that can be carried by one person. Staff on site cannot help unload or carry items under any circumstances.

7.    There will be a strict 10-minute time limit per car when on site – please segregate waste before arriving to help keep your visit short.
