On Tuesday, 4 May, an advance booking system opened for Rutland residents who want to return to using the County Council's Recycling Centre at Cottesmore.
The site will be reopening on Monday 17 May after being closed due to the impact of COVID-19.
Residents wanting to use the Centre can now book a 20-minute time slot online by visiting: www.rutland.gov.uk/hwrcbooking. Three vehicles are allowed on site during each of these time slots. Anyone who is unable to book online because they do not have access to the internet can book by calling 01572 722 577.
From Monday 17 May, Cottesmore Recycling Centre will be open four days a week (Friday to Monday), from 10.00am to 6.00pm. Visitors will not be able to access Cottesmore Recycling Centre unless they have booked in advance and should bring their booking confirmation with them when they visit.
A similar booking system is also in operation for North Luffenham Recycling Centre, which is open six days a week (Tuesday to Sunday) 10.00am to 6.00pm.
Trailers are not currently allowed at North Luffenham but can be brought back onto that site from Tuesday 18 May – an advance booking system for this will be available from Monday 10 May. Trailers will not be permitted at Cottesmore when the site reopens. However, the Council is continuing to keep this under review.
In line with the Government’s proposed removal of all legal limits on social contact, the Council hopes to lift all COVID restrictions and return to a full service across its two Household Waste and Recycling sites in June 2021. The continuing need for a booking system to manage traffic safely and effectively at both Cottesmore and North Luffenham will be reviewed after 21 June
