Plans being finalised for re-opening of seven county waste sites

Posted: Thu, 14 May 2020 16:28 by Lucy Flavin

The county council is putting the finishing touches to its plans to re-open seven of its recycling and household waste sites next week.

The selected sites will open seven days a week to county residents - with a booked appointment only - from Monday, 18th May. They are at Barwell, Lount, Market Harborough, Melton Mowbray, Mountsorrel, Oadby and Whetstone. More »

Seven other sites at Bottesford, Coalville, Loughborough, Lutterworth, Kibworth, Shepshed and Somerby remain closed for the time being.

From today (Thursday, 14th), an online booking system is also available by visiting

The council is anticipating there will be a high level of demand for bookings and is reassuring residents that more slots will be made available over the coming weeks.

People are being asked to only bring what they cannot safely store at home for the time being, or if they cannot wait for their kerbside collection services, many of which are being reinstated by district councils

Social distancing will be in operation at the sites, and plans will also include traffic management arrangements. There will be parking restrictions in place around the immediate vicinity of the waste sites.

There will also be restrictions on the type of items people will be able to bring to county locations - so some waste types will still have to wait.

Councillor Trevor Pendleton, county council cabinet member for waste disposal, said: "I want to thank residents for their support around the measures which the council has taken to date, and would welcome their continued support to ensure the arrangements we are putting in place can operate successfully.

"We want our sites to work as efficiently as they can, while prioritising the health and safety of residents and our staff, so I would ask for patience during the first few days of operation.

"Please don't visit our sites, unless waste is creating an issue at home that could cause injury or harm – and you will need a confirmed booking to be allowed on to the site."

Residents will be able to register for an account

There will be a restriction on the number of visits to the sites, only one booking will be allowed over a 14-day period. » Less

Covid-19: Pulling through together

On Monday 23rd March the Prime Minister declared a 3 week lockdown, this lockdown has now been extended. The Prime Minister has experienced his own battle with Covid-19, we also think of local people who have been effected by the disease.

Of course we live in the wonderful Parish of Bottesford surrounded as we are by green fields, much space and fresh air. March brought the usual daffodils, lambs and blue skies. In any normal year it would have been a wonderful response to the wet winter and the floods of February.

But this year will not be the same as others. As we progress into the next phase I am sure we will all focus on three things:

The first to follow the Government's advice to Stay Home > Protect the NHS > Save Lives.

The second is equally important. As we enter the next stage we ask that anyone in need of support and help to make their need known. Whether it's practical support such as shopping or prescriptions, or the need to connect via regular phone calls or 'window waves'.

There is always someone to help. I have spoken to people at St Mary's, The Methodist Church, the Good Neighbour Scheme, Neighbourhood Watch and The Friendly Bench. And all these organisations will do what they can to help or find help. The Parish Council agreed at their latest meeting (held over video conferencing of course) to secure any funding necessary to help these organisations to continue to do the work they need to do.

The third is to do what we can to help and support those around us who are working hard to help people: those who work in the local NHS facilities – the hospitals and surgeries, the social workers, those involved in grocery and food distribution – not least our own shops in Bottesford, and all others dedicting the time and efforts to supporting us all. At this time more than any we thank them for their efforts

Together we can pull through this well and strong.
If we follow the advice, and ask for help and if we work together.

Bob Bayman (Chair of Bottesford Parish Council)
