The Household Recycling Centre (HRC) at Fosse Cross, near Cirencester has re-opened as of this Monday (18 May) for pre-booked visits only.
Social distancing measures will be 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.
Gloucestershire County Councillor and Lib Dem Group leader Paul Hodgkinson, added: “This is really good news. Residents have lobbied me about the re-opening and a Facebook poll of over 230 people on my councillor page showed 77 percent in favour of Fosse Cross getting back into service.
"People have been rightly worried about fly tipping in our beautiful area. As the Government asks the public to return to work, I’m glad the county council administration is providing residents with this much missed facility again."
The booking system has a limited number of timed slots available each day for visitors to select and only a 7 day window will be 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.
