All household recycling centres are currently closed due to Coronavirus.

Following the announcement by the Prime Minister on the evening of Monday 23 March that everyone should stay at home to save lives, we have
closed all household waste recycling centres with immediate effect.
Recycling centres will not open from Tuesday 24 March onwards, for an indefinite period.
Visiting recycling centres is not included in the reasons for leaving home.
All households should make full use of their kerbside waste collection service, which your local council is making every effort to keep operational for your recycling, green and food waste and general waste.

Covid-19: Waste and Recycling Services

If you have suspected or confirmed Coronavirus and are self-isolating, you need to double bag your used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths and wait 72 hours before putting it out for collection. For more information visit our page here.

Right Waste, right Place campaign launches Ambassador Programme and secures Suez, Veolia, FSB, Cory Environmental, Augean PLC, Redrow, Willmott Dixon and the Gloucestershire Joint Waste Team as Campaign Ambassadors

Right Waste, right Place (rWrP), the campaign which raises awareness of the Duty of Care legislation and provides practical information to help businesses from a broad range of sectors to comply, has today launched its Ambassador Programme. Suez, Veolia, the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), Cory Environmental, Augean PLC, Redrow, Willmott Dixon and the Gloucestershire Joint Waste Team have already signed up to become Campaign Ambassadors and will raise awareness of the Duty of Care amongst their +5,000 suppliers. As such they are champions of the cause and may use the campaign materials to their benefit including bespoke research and educational packages.

The initial criteria to be an Ambassador are as follows:

  • Evidence that the organisation embraces the principles of rWrP and has an internal programme and policy on waste management.
  • A commitment to promoting best practice with regard to waste management.
  • A commitment to actively engage with rWrP to promote the campaign.

Sam Corp, Head of Regulation at the ESA, commented:

"The number of organisations actively involved with the right Waste, right Place campaign, representing a broad range of sectors, shows just how serious an issue Duty of Care compliance is. Therefore, I am delighted to announce Suez, Veolia, FSB, Cory Environmental, Augean PLC, Redrow, Willmott Dixon and the Gloucestershire Joint Waste Team as Campaign Ambassadors and look forward to many more organisations signing up to the programme in the near future."

Primarily, but not exclusively aimed at SMEs, rWrP raises awareness of the Duty of Care legislation and provides practical information to help companies, partnerships, family businesses and sole traders from a broad range of sectors to comply and help keep waste out of the hands of waste criminals. An easy to use interactive website www.rightwasterightplace.com has been developed, which offers practical advice on how to manage waste safely and efficiently. Those interested in joining the rWrP Ambassador Programme are encouraged to get in touch via info@rightwasterightplace.com.
