With wider Covid 19 restrictions having been eased the booking system at West Bridgford household waste and recycling centre on Rugby Road will be removed from 1 November 2021.
The County Council introduced a trial online booking system for residents needing to visit the site back in September 2020.
Now with most Council services returning to ‘near normal’ after the coronavirus pandemic the booking system will be removed.
From 1 November 2021 residents will be able to visit the site without booking a slot.
Councillor Neil Clarke MBE, Chairman of Transport and Environment Committee said:
“I would like to thank residents for their patience whilst the booking system has been in place.
“The online booking system for West Bridgford was introduced as a temporary measure to ensure the safety of residents and staff onsite during the pandemic.
“The system allowed us to manage the number of people on site at any one time and the queues of traffic that generated on the highway.
“The government eased restrictions back in July, but now we’re entering a quieter time of year where visitors at recycling centres are a lot lower than the Summer we’re in a position where we feel we can remove the online booking system.
“I would encourage residents to continue to use the site responsibly; visit during quieter times if possible – weekends tend to be busiest – and not to queue on the highway and block access to adjoining roads for other road users and pedestrians.”
All 12 recycling centres across the county will be operating winter opening hours from 1 Nov, with opening hours 8am to 4pm daily – all sites will be closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
