Warning issued over queues at Sheffield tips as high demand is expected over Bank Holiday

A warning has been issued to visitors heading to Sheffield’s Household Waste Recycling Centres over the bank holiday weekend – with people told not to queue outside.

Saturday, 29th May 2021, 10:08 am

All five of Sheffield’s household waste recycling centres are open over the Bank Holiday between 9.30 am and 5.30 pm.

High numbers of residents have visited the sites throughout the pandemic, and it is expected that demand and visitor numbers will increase over this Bank Holiday weekend.

Visitors are advised that it is not acceptable for vehicles to queue outside the sites as this may cause potential danger for other road users trying to pass – drivers will initially be asked to move by the site staff, and failure to do so could result in a £70 fine.

All sites continue to have social distancing rules in place and when visiting a site, and residents are reminded to follow the latest COVID-19 guidance at all times.

People are responsible for their own social distancing, and face coverings should be worn at all times unless exempt. It is also recommended that visitors wear gloves and bring a hand sanitiser for use after visiting a site.

Sheffield’s five household waste recycling centres accept a wide range of items, including large bulky waste such as sofas, chairs and white goods (including fridges, freezers and other electrical appliances), textiles, glass bottles and jars, wood, scrap metal, batteries, garden waste, electrical appliances and even engine and cooking oil.
