If you have bulky items to dispose of, please either wait until we are able to accept these items (more information to follow soon) or until Government social distancing rules are relaxed.A new traffic management system will be in place and queuing outside of the sites may be restricted.

CORONAVIRUS COVID 19 UPDATE
The message below has been sent to us by Flintshire County Council.
Coronavirus (Covid-19) – Council Services
The UK and Welsh Governments last night announced strict new measures for essential travel, social distancing and public behaviour.
Council services and facilities which would only encourage the public to make non-essential journeys if they were to remain open will be closed with immediate effect.
Household Waste and Recycling Centres are one such service. All centres are closed until further notice.
Travelling to these sites to dispose of waste is not a valid reason to leave your homes and travel.
Employees at these sites will be redeployed to support other key waste collection services at this time.
Residents are advised to store any bulky waste, DIY waste, electrical items and garden waste at home within the boundary of their own property for the foreseeable future. Do not put this waste out for collection on your usual kerbside bin day as we will not collect it.
If you discover hazardous waste at your property during a DIY or building project, such as asbestos, please contact the Council immediately for advice.
The Council will comply instantly with all such national directions. More directions might follow. Not to do so would contravene Government guidance. Any services or facilities affected by such announcements will be closed or withdrawn immediately.
All essential Council services are running as normal unless they are listed as being closed or restricted on the Flintshire County Council website: flintshire.gov.uk
However, the situation is changing quickly.
We appeal for your cooperation and patience.
Please find attached job adverts and links to recruitment for our summer team. Please circulate widely. It is always beneficial to have local people involved. Any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
