Spring is finally here and the evenings are getting lighter – a number of Council services are now moving to their summer opening hours.
Waste and Recycling:
From 1 April until 30 September, the four Household Waste Recycling Centres run by Rotherham Council will be open six days a week from 10.00 am until 6.30 pm.
• Magilla (North Anston) is closed every Tuesday
• Car Hill (Greasbrough) is closed every Wednesday
• Warren Vale (Rawmarsh) is closed every Thursday
