Recycling Centres adjusted hours
All HWRCs are open to the public for essential journeys only. However, we are currently experiencing many visitors at the recycling centres.
The current winter opening times are due to change to summer opening times from 1 April; however, due to the increased number of visitors using the Winsford, Northwich, Ellesmere Port and Chester recycling centres we are extending the opening hours of those sites by 2 hours at the end of the scheduled opening days.
From Friday 12 March:
• Winsford, Chester and Ellesmere Port recycling centres are open 7 days a week from 8am to 6pm.
• Northwich site will be open five days a week from 8am – 5pm
• Neston Frodsham and Tattenhall sites will continue to close promptly at 4pm.
Secondary site opening times are shown below:
|Sunday||8am to 5pm||8am to 4pm||8am to 4pm||8am to 4pm|
|Monday||8am to 5pm||8am to 4pm||8am to 4pm||8am to 4pm|
|Tuesday||8am to 5pm||CLOSED||8am to 4pm||CLOSED|
|Thursday||CLOSED||8am to 4pm||CLOSED||8am to 4pm|
|Friday||8am to 5pm||8am to 4pm||8am to 4pm||8am to 4pm|
|Saturday||8am to 65m||8am to 4pm||8am to 4pm||8am to 4pm|
Due to the volume of cars queuing to use the sites, you may be turned away before the closing time to allow those already on the sites to dispose of their waste safely before the site closes. Road signs have been placed outside Northwich, Chester, Winsford and Ellesmere Port recycling centres to show waiting points of 30 mins and one hour to access the site.
From 1 April 2021 all Household Waste Recycling Centres will open on their usual opening days and times. Recycling centres
