HWRC update - electrical equipment

HWRC update - electrical equipment
31 July 2020

From Tuesday 4 August both Hatston and Garson Household Waste Recycling Centres will again be able to accept waste electrical and electronic equipment.

This means they now accept;

  • Black bag waste
  • Bulky household waste
  • Garden waste
  • Cardboard
  • Electrical waste and electronic equipment.

The current restrictions remain in place meaning that no more than five cars at a time are allowed on site at Hatston and three at a time at Garson.

Opening hours are 09:00 to 15:45 at Hatston and 10:00 to 15:45 at Garson from Tuesday to Saturday, with both closed from 12:00 to 13:00.

We are unfortunately still unable to open the other HWRCs due to resource issues as a result of physical distancing and hygiene requirements associated with the control of COVID-19.

We appreciate that this is not ideal for these communities and are continuing to work to identify the means to return these services as soon as possible as part of the ongoing phased Recovery process.
