Greenford reuse and recycling centres to reopen for essential use

Sat 16 May 2020
Residents are being advised to make only essential trips to the reuse and recycling centres when they reopen on Monday 18 May 2018.

The refuse and recycling centres have been closed during the current lockdown while other services have continued as normal.

Only essential visits to centres are advised. Ealing Council has plans in place to help manage the long queues that are expected. Social distancing measures will be in place to help prevent any further spread of the virus.

The sites in Greenford Road, Greenford and Stirling Road, Acton, will be open from 8am-4pm seven days a week. There will be no pedestrian access. Residents are advised to not attempt access to the sites after 3.30pm.

Councillor Mik Sabiers, the council’s cabinet member for environment and highways, said: "We would like to thank residents for their continued support during these difficult times. We continue to ask for their support as the lockdown starts to ease and the Greenford and Acton depots reopen. Please only make a visit if it is absolutely necessary."

"Staff will be on hand to give direction on how the site will be operating, and to limit cars entering. We would appreciate patience from anyone needing to visit."

To reduce risks of transmission, Ealing Council has put in the below measures:

  • The number of vehicles and time allowed on site will be restricted
  • Queuing times will be significantly higher and additional traffic control measures will be in place around the sites.
  • You are advised to segregate your recyclables before arriving.
  • Social distancing of at least 2 metres will be strictly enforced.
  • Only one adult is permitted to leave each vehicle while on site.
  • No assistance can be offered with manual handling.

If you or any members of your household have been experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms in the last 14 days, you must not visit household reuse and recycling centres under any circumstances.
