Statement : from Trustees of WRRC

The WRRC in Maria Place is now completely closed until further notice.

Although recycling is listed as an essential business and the Centre was originally to remain open, the experience of the last two days has demonstrated that it is not possible to ensure that the protocols set by the Government, such as 2m distancing, will be practiced given that the roadfront drop off is open 24/7. 

While it has been possible to protect our staff by closing off the rear dropoff,¬† this danger is exposed if they are required to police the roadfront dropoff. The Trustees wish to support the Government’s lockdown protocols and not give a further reason for the public to leave their homes.

Options for recycling are now :

  • Store until the Centre reopens
  • Dispose along with your regular general waste collection.
