Avoid the rush at household recycling centres this bank holiday

"The recycling centres are really popular year round but extra busy over bank holiday weekends. If you are visiting a centre, we’d recommend avoiding peak times"
Steve Read, Head of the Joint Waste Team

Gloucestershire Joint Waste Team is asking residents to plan their visit to the household recycling centre to avoid queuing this May bank holiday.

Recycling centres are located at; Fosse Cross North of Cirencester, Oak Quarry near Coleford, Pyke Quarry West of Horsley near Stroud, Wingmoor Farm at Bishop’s Cleeve and Hempsted, Gloucester.

These five recycling centres will be open every day across the May bank holiday; the best times to avoid queues will be between 9am – 10am or 4pm – 6pm.

Sorting out recyclable items such as electrical goods, paper, cardboard, plastics and bottles before setting out will also help reduce the amount of time spent at a centre.

At the very busy Hempsted recycling centre, a relief road will be opened up to help people leave the site quickly.

Steve Read, Head of the Joint Waste Team said, “The recycling centres are really popular year round but extra busy over bank holiday weekends. If you are visiting a centre, we’d recommend avoiding peak times.

Paper, cardboard, plastics, glass, cans and textiles can be taken local recycling sites located all over the county including supermarket car parks. Local recycling banks make it easy to recycle and then shop in one trip, saving time and mileage.”

The Swindon Road recycling centre in Cheltenham is also open 7.30am – 4pm on Saturdays and 9am – 1pm on Sundays and bank holiday Mondays. This site is open until 7.30pm on regular weekdays during summer time.

Those using a van, pick-up or large trailer are reminded to pre-book before they visit by using the online booking system, or by calling 0845 602 9344 to avoid being turned away.
