Covid-19 – Waste and Recycling

Please read the following information about changes to waste and recycling services run by Warwickshire County Council.

Recycling centre closures

Following the announcement by the Prime Minister on the evening of Monday 23 March that everyone should stay at home to save lives, we have closed all household waste recycling centres with immediate effect.

Recycling centres will not open from Tuesday 24 March onwards, for an indefinite period. Visiting recycling centres is not included in the reasons for leaving home.

All households should make full use of their kerbside waste collection service, which your local council is making every effort to keep operational for your recycling, green and food waste and general waste.

Warwickshire waste transfer stations

Warwickshire waste transfer stations will continue to operate for district and borough councils and for trade waste.

Commercial, charged for, waste can still be brought to:

  • Princes Drive, Leamington
  • Hunters Lane, Rugby

Site users must observe social distancing at the weighbridge and when tipping.

Waste must be separated for recycling and composting as normal – lower charges apply for recycling than for general waste.

Cards are accepted but cash is not.
