Waste and Recycling Guidance from SBC
Dealing with waste responsibly - From SBC
The HWRC is now partially open for essential, pre-booked visits only. This is to ensure we maintain the safety of residents, staff and other site users.
This approach will also limit the number of vehicles queuing on surrounding roads and minimise disruption to local businesses. We also do not wish to disrupt our waste collections, which operate from the same site.

Please ensure elderly or vulnerable people you know are made aware of these scams.
Beware of Phishing links & automated calls
