Waste and recycling
All recycling centres across Essex are closed until further notice. The decision to close sites has not been taken lightly but it is essential to encourage residents to stay at home and limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
If you were planning to visit a recycling centre, please hold on to the items you were planning to take until they reopen.
During this time, we ask residents to act responsibly and not place items such as DIY waste, or recycling into their kerbside general rubbish collection. This will take up space in the collection vehicles needed for general household rubbish.
