Please note: We are currently experiencing a large number of visitors at local recycling centres. Only visit the sites if your journey is essential. Please be aware that Frodsham, Tattenhall and Neston sites close promptly at 4pm and there will be no entry after this time. You may be turned away before 4pm to allow those on the sites to dispose of their waste safely and correctly.

- Winsford, Chester and Ellesmere Port recycling centres will open from 8am to 6pm, seven days a week.

Road signs have been placed outside Northwich, Chester, Winsford and Ellesmere Port recycling centres which display estimated site queuing times. Social distancing rules are still in place at the recycling centres. Please remember to sort out your recycling into different materials at home. This will be quicker for you to recycle correctly when you go to your nearest recycling site.
