Rise In Visitors To East Riding Household Recycling Centres

Rubbish tips in the East Riding remain open for essential visits only, the local authority has said.

East Riding Council said restrictions on visits to household waste recycling sites put in place following their reopening on May 4 remained in place.

It comes as the local authority said the number of people travelling to sites had risen since the weekend.

Tips were reopened earlier this month with social distancing measures in place following their closure at the start of the Coronavirus lockdown in March.

A spokesperson for the council said:

“All the restrictions we put in place when we reopened the household waste recycling sites on May 4 are still in place and there are no plans to change them at the moment.

However, since the weekend, we have been experiencing an increase in visitors to our household waste recycling sites.

We would like to remind people the sites are open for essential use only.

If residents do need to visit and there is a large queue waiting outside, we would ask them to please come back another day, to help avoid traffic problems building up.

Our sites are open seven days a week from 10am to 5pm.”

The 10 waste and recycling sites in the East Riding currently operate a one in, one out system, with limits on the number of people allowed in at any time. Staff are currently unable to assist visitors.

Visitors are not allowed to bring any asbestos onto the site. Residents showing coronavirus symptoms have been asked to avoid visiting facilities.

Those with coronavirus or showing the symptoms of the illness have been asked to remain at home and avoid visiting the sites.
