Cornwall’s 14 Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRC) are to trial extended opening hours.

As part of the trial, all HWRCs, apart from Tintagel, will stay open until 6pm on Wednesdays from 7 April to 4 August.  As Tintagel HWRC is closed midweek, this site only will extend its opening hours on Monday evenings from 12 April to 9 August.

All HWRCs are operating a car number plate system to manage the flow of visitors and enable social distancing in order to protect the health of staff and visitors. We expect the number plate system to remain in place throughout the trial but are keeping the situation under review.

For more information on our HWRCs, rubbish and recycling please visit the recycling, rubbish and waste pages of the Cornwall Council website.
