Crawley and Sussex household waste recycling sites to reopen next week

Published

The County Council has confirmed it has developed a plan, subject to further government guidance, to safely reopen Household Waste Recycling Sites (HWRSs) next week (week commencing 11 May).

The date will be confirmed later this week when further guidance on managing the reopening of sites will be released by central government.

The sites were closed temporarily in March to ensure the safety of residents and staff, and to limit the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

Social distancing measures will be in place when the sites reopen, the number of people visiting at any one time will be restricted and there may be limits on the waste which can be accepted.

The council says that a visit should only be undertaken if the journey can be considered essential.

Crawley has one Pret A Manager within The Martletts with several others located within Gatwick Airport itself.

It is not yet clear which shops will close but with jobs cuts to come across its shops it will be a very nervous time for Crawley’s shop staff to see if they are affected in any way.
