All 14 county waste sites back in business

All 14 county waste sites back in business

Visitors to sites need to book a slot in order to visit, so that social distancing can be observed, and restrictions on some waste types are still in place at some sites. Sites will continue to be open between 9am and 5pm. More »

We've made sure that our biggest and busiest sites – Whetstone and Mountsorrel – are open seven days a week, and most other sites stay at a five-day week, as they were before coronavirus affected our service. We'll keep these arrangements in place during the ongoing pandemic.

We're also keeping the booking system in place as this has allowed us to maintain social distancing at the sites, which is extremely important while the spread of coronavirus remains a threat. It's also meant visitors avoid lengthy queues to access our sites

For more information about individual sites opening times, to book an appointment and for further details on recycling and waste in Leicestershire, visit or call 0116 305 0001. » Less
