Barwell tip booking system to end on July 19
Added at 11:24 on 14 July 2021
Due to revisions to Government guidance concerning social distancing on July 19th, Leicestershire County Council is now in a position to remove the booking system for the Recycling and Household Waste Sites on this date. This will mean that users can turn up at any site when it is open to dispose of their household waste.
The site at Stapleton Lane, Barwell, will open from 9am to 6pm on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. It will be closed on Thursday and Friday.
From Monday 19 July: there will be no booking necessary to visit a waste site, but anyone using a van or trailer, or bringing certain waste types, will require a waste permit to visit. The permit application form is available from Mon 12 July.
The County Council says: "The safety of the public and staff on our sites remains our utmost priority and, whilst we are now in a position to remove the booking system, we will continue to encourage safe social distancing and measures on the sites in line with the continued guidance."
In order to help manage the anticipated increased traffic peaks traffic management will be operational on 8 sites (Barwell, Coalville, Kibworth, Lount, Melton, Mountsorrel, Oadby and Whetstone) from Friday 16th July.
