Winsford recycling centre

Coronavirus (COVID-19) and new rules

Recycling centres are open and working to temporary site rules.

Closed right now

Opens: Sunday 8:00am - 4:00pm

Summer opening hours, April to September

Monday - Friday 8am - 8pm
Saturday and Sunday 8am - 6pm

Winter opening hours, October to March
Monday - Sunday 8am - 4pm

Closed: Christmas day, Boxing day and New Years day. On other bank holidays we are open as normal.

Please note: When visiting one of our recycling centres, you will be required to provide proof of residency, for example, a utility bill, bank statement or drivers licence. It is important that site users understand what is expected of them and what standard of service they can receive in return. More information can be found on our code of conduct page.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions and the introduction of social distancing measures we are limiting the number of cars allowed on site at any one time. This means that there could be queues to get onto the site. When this happens we operate a one car off, one car on system and the gates to the recycling centre will close earlier than advertised to make sure that those already on site can recycle their waste correctly and safely before the scheduled closing time. You could be asked to return to the recycling centre on the next open day.

Please be aware that sites may also close earlier than the advertised closing time if it is dark or there is bad weather. This is for safety reasons. We thank you for your consideration during this difficult time.

It is important to recycle batteries correctly as they can become harmful if they are damaged. More information about why it is important can be found on our recycling batteries page.

Safety and restrictions

We do not accept asbestos, gas cylinders, tyres.

Trailers over 3.5m in length are not permitted.

Vehicles 3.5 tonnes and above gross vehicle weight are not permitted. 

Sites may close earlier if dark.

You cannot take waste onto the site by foot.

Do you need a permit?

You no longer need a permit for this centre.  We now monitor visits using automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), mystery shoppers and body camera technology.  

If you are a charity, please view our information on charity permits.

Reuse shop

To maximise reuse opportunities, we now have a shop at Winsford. Items for sale include bric-a brac, small electrical items and some furniture, all of which are safety tested. This will increase the amount of waste reused, which is preferable to both recycling and waste disposal.

Our code of conduct

We aim to provide the highest standard of customer service to our residents. More information can be found on our code of conduct page.

Location

Leslie Road, Woodford Park Industrial Estate, Winsford, CW7 2RB
