Household waste recycling centres in Denbighshire will close on Friday (October 23) as part of the Welsh Government ‘firebreak’ lockdown.

Denbighshire residents with a valid booking will be able to access the recycling parks until the end of the day on Friday (October 23) but all bookings made after that date will be cancelled.

Cllr Brian Jones, Denbighshire County Council’s Lead Member for Waste, Transport and the Environment, said: “Following the announcement by Welsh Government all household waste recycling centres will close at the end of the day on October 23.

“We urge residents not to turn up at the recycling parks this week without a valid booking.  The booking system has been working well and helped to keep staff and residents safe, enabling us to operate with social distancing measures in place.  Vehicles without a valid booking will be turned away.

“We would like to thank residents for their co-operation and once we are given the all clear to reopen the sites, we will let residents know and resume the booking system.”

The Corwen and Llangollen pop-up recycling centres will also close during the lockdown.

At this time, the Council’s bulky waste service and all kerbside services, including garden waste are running as normal.

If residents are unable to store bulky waste items safely during the lockdown period, they can book a bulky waste collection online via www.denbighshire.gov.uk/bulkyitems There is a small collection charge for bulky waste items.
