More Waste Sites in the County Set to Re-Open

Leicestershire County Council is finalising plans to re-open the remainder of its recycling and household waste sites which have been closed since mid-March.

Six more sites will begin to re-open from later this month, starting at Bottesford on Thursday, 30 July, with time-slots available to book online from Friday, 17 July.

Sites at Kibworth and Coalville will re-open on Monday, 3 August and Tuesday, 4 August respectively, with online bookings for both sites available from Friday, 24 July.

Lutterworth's waste site will re-open from Friday, 14 August, the Loughborough site from Saturday, 15 August and Somerby from Sunday, 16 August. Online bookings for all three sites will be made available from Friday, 31 July.

All sites require residents to book an appointment in advance to ensure the safety of site users and staff as social distancing is maintained.

A booking system, which has been in operation for the sites already open, will help ensure queuing is kept to a minimum, and residents can safely use the sites without delay.

Locations at Barwell, Lount, Market Harborough, Melton Mowbray, Mountsorrel, Oadby and Whetstone re-opened in mid-May.

These sites will continue to be open for the extended period of seven days a week, with the Shepshed site continuing to open for five days a week, including weekends. These arrangements will be subject to change as more sites re-open.

People wishing to visit a waste site are reminded that all information about the types of waste accepted at each site, as well as links to the booking system, are available at
