Residents are being urged not to use Oxfordshire’s household waste and recycling centres (HWRCs) over the traditionally busy Easter holiday period, if they can avoid doing so.
From Friday 26th March, traffic control measures will be introduced at four of the county’s seven HWRCs for a three-week period, and centres will be closed early or for short periods in the day if queues start affecting surrounding roads. Late-night opening on Thursdays is also being reintroduced from 1st April, with centres staying open until 8pm to help the situation.
The HWRCs have been open for essential journeys only during lockdown but are operating at 50 per cent car parking capacity due to Covid-19 restrictions and social distancing.
