Gloucestershire’s recycling centres set to move to summer hours

Gloucestershire County Council recycling centres are currently experiencing high levels of demand.  To help meet the increased demand, summer opening hours will come into effect from Sunday 21st March instead of Sunday 28th March. They will be open from 9am to 5pm, instead of the shorter winter hours of 10am to 4pm.

Visitors to all household recycling centres need to pre-book their visit. Social distancing is required on site and to minimise queues and waiting times the number of booking slots available is limited.  Residents are asked to please keep to their appointment times to help to reduce queues.

Those with symptoms of COVID-19 or who are self-isolating must not visit and should stay at home, following the most up to date government and NHS advice.

Fosse Cross Household Recycling Centre Reopened

On Monday 18 May, the Household Recycling Centre at Fosse Cross near Cirencester reopened. Social distancing measures are in place to help keep visitors and staff safe and crucially anyone with covid-19 symptoms and those in self-isolating households MUST NOT visit.  To limit the number of people on-site at Fosse Cross pre-booking will be required and vehicles should only have drivers wherever possible – a maximum of one passenger is permitted if you need help to unload your waste and recycling.

The booking system has a limited number of timed slots available each day for visitors to select and only a 7 day window is available to book at any one time. Bookings can only be made online.  Visitors are asked to only bring to site what they can safely unload themselves as site staff need to social distance so will not be able to help with unloading.

The re-use shop is closed and some recycling bins may be unavailable. For an up to date list of materials which can be accepted at the site please refer online to Gloucestershire Recycles.
