TWO more household recycling centres in Worcestershire have reopened today - but Kidderminster's remains closed.

Worcestershire County Council has reopened tips in Droitwich and Worcester West, bringing the number operating across the county to nine out of 11.

Cars queued to access the Bonemill recycling centre in Stourport when it reopened with strict social distancing measures and visitor restrictions earlier this month.

Only Kidderminster and Upton-upon-Severn tips remain closed, and the council is yet to confirm when the Worcester Road site will reopen.

Worcestershire County Council was unavailable for comment, but previously said on its website that other centres would remain closed until adequate staffing was available.

Councillor Tony Miller, cabinet member with responsibility for the environment, said: “I’m pleased that we’ve managed to open another two of our household recycling centres.

"I’d like to take the opportunity to remind people to please be patient when visiting, and to check the Let’s Waste Less website before travelling due to restrictions that are in place, across all of our operating sites.

"While the doors to two further HRC’s are opening, things will not be running as they were before the lockdown was brought in due to the social distancing measures that remain in place.”

Under new social distancing measures, reopened recycling centres are currently operating a one in, one out policy and staff are not assisting visitors with unloading.
