Residents were reminded to only visit if absolutely necessary and consider how essential their trip is before setting off. The recycling centres are for the use of Cheshire West and Chester residents only.
Northwich, Neston, Ellesmere Port, Winsford and Chester HWRCs
After two weeks each of the sites has been reviewed and will be returning to normal operating hours, days and traffic management procedures. These sites will return back to normal on Wednesday 27 May after the bank holiday weekend, so expected increase in visitors during the bank holiday can be managed.
Frodsham HWRC opened on Friday 15 May, and the additional measures will be in place up to and including Friday 29 May, after which these will be reviewed to determine the best way forward. Frodsham is a busy site in the middle of the town centre, and currently using the Station car park for people to queue before entering the site, so as to stop queuing on the narrow road up to the site and onto the highway. There will be a need to return the car park back to its normal use shortly to allow people to park.
Tattenhall will be reviewed in two weeks to determine if it is safe to open the site when overall demand has decreased. In the meantime residents are encouraged to use the other sites for the initial phase of recovery, which may reduce demand and allow Tattenhall to open if and when it is safe to do so.
