Changes to the recycling centre

From Thursday 24 August 2023, this site will have a new one-way system which will not allow vehicles to reverse. 

Signage will show a new lane and parking area, and a pedestrian route will be marked from the entrance. 

Please also note that:

  • only two cars will be allowed to unload to stop congestion
  • vehicles over 5m in length, commercial vehicles and trailers will not be permitted
  • changes will be made to what items we will accept at the site

More information can be found in our Tattenhall recycling centre leaflet (PDF, 499KB).

The gates may be closed before the closing times to allow those on the site to dispose of their waste.
