Household Waste centres to re-open, with restrictions

Household waste recycling sites are re-opening from today to give residents the chance to dispose of essential waste, but with strict measures in place in line with the Government’s ‘stay at home’ advice.

The four Household Waste Recycling Sites are operating on their normal opening days with reduced opening hours of 10.30pm to 5.30pm:

  • Greasbrough - Car Hill, S61 4QL (closed every Wednesday, except 6 May)
  • Bramley - Lidget Lane, S65 4LY (closed every Friday)
  • Rawmarsh - Warren Vale, S62 7SS (closed every Thursday)
  • North Anston - Magilla, Common Road, S25 4AH (closed every Tuesday)

Residents should only visit the recycling sites if absolutely necessary – where excess waste cannot be stored at home safely. Residents are also being asked to be mindful not to immediately rush to sites in the first few days.

Given social distancing restrictions on site, longer waiting times are expected so we’re asking residents to be patient. For road safety, the length of queues are being restricted, and customers will be asked to return later if the queues are too long.

The following items will not be accepted: DIY waste (including rubble and wood), plaster board, hard plastic and plastic bottles, textiles, motor oil, vegetable oil, batteries and gas canisters, and domestic appliances including fridges.

Bulky items that cannot currently be disposed of at household waste sites can still be collected via the Council’s bulky waste service.

Residents with garden waste are asked not to bring this to the sites at the current time and collections of brown bins will be resuming next week.

Details about restrictions can be found on our website by clicking the button below.

These restrictions will help to ensure those who need to use the sites can access them, without creating the type of difficulties that might necessitate closure.
