Spalding's Household Waste Recycling Centre in West Marsh Road

Don’t take garden waste, wood or rubble to the tip

In an effort to reduce the number of people on site and cut queues, Lincolnshire tips – including Spalding’s West Marsh Road Site – will refuse certain types of waste.

Household Waste Recycling Centres (tips) are currently remaining open as usual, Lincolnshire County Council said.

A spokesman added: “We are, however, limiting the number of cars on site at any one time due to allowing for increased social distancing.

“This means that there will be delays at peak visiting times so please plan your visit accordingly, alternatively wait until such time as the restriction has been removed.

“All Household Waste Recycling Centre have now¬†stopped accepting garden waste, wood and rubble to help reduce queues.”

Coun Martin Hill, Leader of Lincolnshire County Council, said: “Over the weekend, most of our services have been running, although restrictions have been put in place which has caused some further disruption.

“To protect staff and the public, we have put some restrictions in place at tips or Household Waste Recycling Centres, as we call them.

“They were busy at the weekend, and we were limiting how many cars went in at once, so thank you to everyone who attended for your patience. We have now restricted what can be taken there and are not accepting rubble, soil, garden waste and wood waste.

“These sites have continued to be busy today so please only go if absolutely necessary.

“This really follows the government’s advice around not making unnecessary journeys, and I’d reinforce the calls that have been made for people not to travel to our coast to prevent crowding in these areas.

“Similarly, people are continuing to panic buy food and other products and I would urge people not to do this so that everyone has access to what they need.”
