For those living in Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch who have accumulated rather a lot of waste over the past few months, the news that recycling centres across the conurbation are now allowing more vehicles on the sites is good news.
With the lifting of Covid measures, two people are now able to get out of their car to unload waste and recycling. Containers for recycling, including hard plastics, have been re-introduced, an increased number of vehicles are allowed on site at any one time and barriers defining social distanced tipping areas and walkways have been removed.
Ian Poultney, head of Sustainability and Strategic Development, BCP Council, said:
“We still ask that if you do visit our recycling centres, check our website prior to visiting to read about the measures that are still in place. Please continue to be patient and kind to our staff who are there to help where they can, and most importantly keep everyone safe on site.”
The following measures remain in place at BCP’s Recycling Centres:
1. Face coverings and social distancing guidance should be followed in line with national guidance
2. Staff on site will not be able to help unload your vehicle or dispose of your waste
3. Traffic levels surrounding the Recycling Centres will continue to be monitored and additional measures will be considered if needed.
