Visit the Recycling Centre (tip)
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday 23 March that everyone should stay at home to save lives, we have closed Bickenhill Household Waste Recycling Centre with immediate effect.
Bickenhill Household Waste Recycling Centre will be closed from Tuesday 24 March onwards, for an indefinite period. Visiting the household waste recycling centre is not included in the reasons for leaving home.
All households should make full use of their kerbside waste collection service - we are making every effort to keep this operational for your refuse and recycling collections. Garden Waste collections are suspended until after Easter and we are asking people to keep their garden waste at home and to consider composting.
