RECYCLING centres in Warwickshire will be open for pre-booked visits over the Easter weekend.
The county’s recycling centres will retain their typical Easter holiday opening timetable, opening on Saturday (April 16) and Sunday (April 17).
The smaller sites in Shipston, Wellesbourne, and Cherry Orchard in Kenilworth will be shut on Friday (April 15) and Monday (April 18) due to planning restrictions.
Booking is required for a 15 minute slot for a car and there are also 30 minute slots for a car and small trailer at most sites.
Appointments can be made on the day, up to just a few minutes before the appointment where available.
Reuse shops at the recycling centres will also be open during the Easter holidays.
Coun Heather Timms, Warwickshire County Council’s environment spokeswoman, said: “I want to thank householders in Warwickshire, who continue to reduce waste generated in the home and separate waste for recycling.
“Recycling all that you can at home and at the recycling centre is one easy way for householders to cut their carbon emissions and help the environment.
“Information about recycling will be kept up to date on the web over the holidays, including how to book a visit to a recycling centre. The appointments lead to an efficient visit, with much-reduced queues.
“We have added appointments across the Warwickshire centres in readiness for the busier warmer months. If you are having a spring clean, don’t forget that our reuse shops welcome donations and are also a treasure trove of bargains for the home and garden.”
