More tips due to open

  • More waste recycling centres will re-open on Monday (11 May).
  • People living in Cross Hills, Sutton in Craven and Steeton will be able to visit the tip in Keighley.
  • It's one of four centres opening in West Yorkshire.
  • 10 of North Yorkshire's sites reopened last week - include those in Skipton and West Harrogate.

Four of Bradford’s Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRC) will re-open on Monday (11 May), following temporary closure due to Coronavirus (Covid-19).

The HWRCs re-opening are as follows:

  • Bowling Back Lane will be open from Monday to Friday 5pm to 10pm. Saturday & Sunday, 8am to 8pm.
  • Keighley, from Monday to Friday 5pm to 10pm. Saturday and Sunday, 8am to 8pm.
  • Dealburn Road, Low Moor, seven days a week from 8am to 8pm.
  • Midland Road, seven days a week. Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm. Saturday, 8am to 4pm. Sunday, 9am to 4pm.

Safety will remain the priority and Bradford Council is asking anyone using the sites to comply with all the social distancing rules when throwing rubbish away and queuing.

Initially no vans, trailers or commercial vehicles will be accepted at any of the sites. Only private cars with a valid household waste permit will be accepted.

Following evaluation over the next few days regarding the volume of traffic councillors will make a decision whether to allow access to all.

A Bradford Council spokesperson said 'we would also ask people not to use the sites unless absolutely necessary at this time. We want to avoid massive queues of traffic on nearby roads'.

Cllr Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Healthy People and Places, said:

“Please bear in mind that there are likely to be long queues for the Household Waste sites in the first days of opening.

“We would ask everybody to carefully consider whether they desperately need to use the site at this time. Government advice clearly states that you must only travel to the site if it is absolutely necessary.

“This deadly virus takes every opportunity to spread when people congregate, so for the safety of yourselves, other residents and staff, please take advantage of bulky waste collection service or store your rubbish at home for as long as possible.”

Everyone using Bradford Council’s Household Waste Recycling Centres will need to show a residents’ permit from inside the vehicle with the windows up, and observe new social distancing rules at all times.
