Herts County Council will open its household waste recycling centres on Good Friday (March 25) to meet the demands of a traditionally busy weekend.

However visitors are asked to check opening times in advance, and to pre-sort items before leaving to make life easier for yourself and for other visitors.

If you park considerately, you will make best use of all available spaces, avoid blocking other site users and prevent the obstruction of through routes.

And if you are going to be pushed for time, avoid busy periods, such as weekends or just after the sites open.

Richard Thake, cabinet member for waste at Herts County Council, said: “Traditionally Easter is an exceptionally busy period for Hertfordshire recyclers visiting HWRCs. We want to support residents by offering Good Friday as an additional day of access to all 17 Hertfordshire sites.

“If you are planning to visit a recycling centre, please do follow the easy tips for a stress-free visit and be respectful to our operators who work hard on weekends and Bank Holidays to provide us with a valuable service which sees 74,262 tonnes of items recycled every year.”
