Upton-upon-Severn Household Recycling Centre set to reopen its gates

UPTON’S Household Recycling Centre is the latest one to be reopening its gates, enabling people across Malvern district to dispose of their waste.

The tip will be available again from Saturday and will have extended opening times for a limited period to help deal with any backlog.

The usual number of days the site will be open will be extended from three to five days for a two-week period from Saturday.

The five days will be June 6 to 10 and between the following Saturday and Wednesday (June 13 to 17).

After that it will return to three days – Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday from June 20.

Many residents have visited the sites across the county since the successful and safe reopening of nine of the 11 HRCs across the county last month.

However, due to new social distancing measures, fewer visitors are allowed on site at any one time, and for Upton, there will be a queuing system in place in the car park to support this.

Coun Tony Miller, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for the Environment, said: “With Upton opening on Saturday this means we have been able to open all but one of our HRC’s within the last four weeks.

“I’d like to take the opportunity to thank staff for their hard work in implementing the new social distancing rules and thank residents for their patience whilst abiding by these rules.”

He urged people to check out the Let’s Waste Less website here beforehand so people know what restrictions are in place.
