Sheffield, along with Doncaster, Barnsley and Rotherham will move into the ‘Very High’ alert category from 00:01am on Saturday 24 October.
Household Recycling Centres open to Sheffield residents only
The sites can only stay open with your co-operation and if you use the sites safely and responsibly.
We are unable to accommodate as many visits as usual because we have to limit the number of people at each site, to ensure safe social distancing.
It is not acceptable for vehicles to queue outside the sites as this may cause potential danger for other road users trying to pass, and you will be asked to move on. Please listen to our staff.
Residents are asked to be patient if there are delays or queues caused by the restrictions. Whilst sites are currently open, the safety of the public and staff is paramount, and if large numbers of people visit the sites or fail to follow the guidelines, they will be forced to close.
A visit to a HWRC should only be made for essential and unavoidable waste disposal, where the waste cannot safely be stored at home for a sustained period. This could include:
- waste that is causing an accessibility, fire or safety issue
- waste which may attract vermin
Only one person should visit the site, and you should only bring waste that you can safely carry as no assistance can be provided by site staff.
We would encourage residents with significant volumes of DIY waste and garden waste to consider contacting a registered skip hire company.
Residents can arrange for collections to take place from their home for both garden waste and bulky waste.
