Frodsham Recycling Centre has re-opened and is managing an increased number of visitors this week. Traffic management arrangements are in place for residents to dispose of their waste safely.
The centre will initially be open seven days a week, from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday, and on Saturday and Sunday between 8am and 6pm to accommodate the expected additional demand. Opening times will be subject to review. This is an extension of the usual opening hours.
Frodsham Recycling Centre can only accept two cars on site at any one time due to social distancing measures. The site staff are operating a one on, one off system to accommodate as many cars each day as possible.
Only cars will be allowed access to the site once it reopens – no pedestrians, vans, trailers or commercial vehicles are permitted. Staff cannot help unload due to social distancing, so visitors must be able to safely unload their own vehicles and place items in skips.
The queue for the recycling centre is on the Station car park and once this car park is full, the access road to the site will be closed until the queue reduces. Only then, will more vehicles be allowed to enter. No queuing is allowed on Church Street for the recycling centre.
These temporary traffic management procedures have been put in places so that:
- Visitors can move up and down the access road safely without causing accidents to others and other cars, as the road is narrow and difficult to negotiate.
- Frodsham recycling centre is within the town centre shopping area. Church Street is the main road into and out of Frodsham and queuing will hinder normal traffic flows.
If and when the car park closes vehicles will be asked to return at another time or use an alternative site such as Ellesmere Port (Garth Road, CH65 4LB).
Frodsham opening times
Frodsham Recycling Centre is temporarily opening for longer to accommodate the waste that residents have accumulated during lockdown. The site will close promptly at 8pm from Monday to Friday and 6pm on Saturday and Sunday until further notice. This will be reviewed in due course.
This site will only accept two cars at a time so queues are likely. Depending on the queue, site staff will determine in the last opening hour which car is the last to gain access to the facilities before the official closing time. Further vehicles in the queue will be asked to return on another day. Thank you for your patience.
Other sites are open for residents to use.
