- Social distancing measures will be put into place at each of the sites:
- Only a limited number of residents will be allowed on site at any one time.
- A ‘supermarket style’ system will be implemented, with a ‘one out, one in’ access policy.
- No assistance will be provided on site so only load items you can unload yourself.
- No pedestrian access onto site will be allowed
- No soil improver / compost sales.
- No reuse charity drop off points.
- Alternate parking spaces / bays will be blocked off.
- Access to each skip would be by one resident at a time.
- We will not accept TEXTILES as the reprocessor is unavailable due to COVID 19.
- The Commercial Vehicle and Trailer Permit scheme will remain in operation.
- We are expecting the sites to become very busy and we would like to ask residents to:
- Visit this page of the website for more information on restrictions BEFORE you travel and to check opening times
- Keep to the 2 metre distancing rules AT ALL TIMES
- Ideally come alone and wear gloves and suitable footwear (no open toe sandals)
- Stay in your vehicle while queuing to aid with social distancing and wait to be directed to a parking bay by staff.
- Please be patient. Remember that going to HRCs will be different from the way the system operated before lockdown, that safety is paramount and that it will be a while before social distancing restrictions are lifted.
- Please act responsibly towards other visitors and staff:
- Severn Waste Services will not tolerate any form of abusive behaviour towards its staff and will take action against offenders
- If you do not comply with social distancing guidance, you will be asked to leave the site and the site may have to close temporarily.
