Re-opening May 18th for Essential Waste
Northamptonshire County Council announced its tips will reopen from May 18th for essential waste only.
In line with guidance from the Government the council is asking the public to make only essential journeys to recycling centres and only if waste or recycling cannot be stored safely at home without causing injury, harm or risk to health.
The council is expecting the sites to be very busy and as they will be operating at reduced capacity to comply with social distancing rules, long queues are expected.
Social distancing measures also mean that site staff will not be able to assist members of the public with carrying any waste, as they usually would do.
Social distancing measures will also apply for members of the public, which will mean that the number of vehicles on site at any one time will be restricted. It will also mean that usual parking bays may not be available, and each site will have one-way systems in place for vehicles and pedestrians. On entering the site, council staff will give clear instructions.
With the anticipated traffic queues, officers will be on hand to help marshal traffic to ensure that no obstructions are caused.
As is usual at busy times, sites may have to close temporarily throughout the day if demand becomes too high, to enable safe operations and allow traffic to disperse from the highway.
Opening times for the Daventry centre are:-
Daventry, Browns Road, NN11 4NS: Mon/Tue/Fr/Sat/Sun, 10am -6pm
