Updated: Sunday 24th May 2020
From Monday, 25th May 2020, the Smugglers Way Household Waste and Recycling Centre will be returning to normal weekday opening hours and will be offering a full range of recycling opportunities. We still anticipate very busy periods and will continue to regulate access, based on car registration numbers, for a while longer.
If you are unwell with symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) or in a 14 –day household isolation you should stay at home.
You can only visit on certain days, depending on your car registration number and you risk being turned away if you arrive on the “wrong” day.
‘even’ registration number plates based on 2nd digit e.g. xx52 xxx. will be allowed access on even days of the month and
“odd” registration plates e.g. 53 or 05, old style number plates, international or personalised registration plates will be allowed access on odd days of the month.
You will be required to stay 2 metres away from other users and Centre staff at all times.
You are advised to wear gloves for your own protection.

SMUGGLERS WAY AND CRINGLE DOCK WASTE TRANSFER STATIONS (FOR RESIDENTS ARRIVING IN A VAN ONLY)
Both Transfer Stations will be open during usual hours.
You will only be permitted to tip if you arrive wearing sturdy, closed-in shoes (no flip flops or open-toe sandals) and have a Hi-Viz vest or jacket (they can be purchased at the Weighbridge Office for £9.00, while stocks last).
You are required to pre-register your van before arriving on site in order that you can drop off your Household Waste for free – https://wrwa.gov.uk/centre-opening-times/. You will also be required to produce ID which should be shown to the Weighbridge Clerk by holding it up against the Weighbridge Office window.
