All Suffolk Recycling Centres be closed from today (Monday 23 March) until further notice.
We will shortly put out public information announcing the closures and advising residents:
• That much of the waste that goes through the Recycling Centres is bulky waste (large items such as furniture, wood and metals) and garden waste. People should hold onto these items until the sites reopen. Do not put any electrical items in any of your bins at home.
• Where possible people should compost grass cuttings and hedge trimmings and if you can’t do that keep your garden waste until we reopen. For more information on how to compost at home please visit https://suffolkrecycling.org.uk/reduce-your-waste/home-composting
• Please do not leave any waste outside the Recycling Centres – staff should concentrate on delivering waste services and leaving waste outside the centres is classed as fly tipping and is a criminal offence for which people will be prosecuted.
FCC Environment staff, who operate the Recycling Centres on behalf of Suffolk County Council, may be redeployed to assist other essential services across Suffolk if needed during the Covid-19 pandemic.
A series of tweets will also be sent out by the SCC corporate communications team.
