Tip Re-opens on Monday

Hamilton and Blantyre Waste and Recycling Centre re-opens on Monday, 1st June 2020.

The local tip will open its gates in just a week resuming disposal services but things are going to be different from what people are used to.

South Lanarkshire Council have introduced a raft of new restrictions including limits to the number of people entering the site and what kind of waste and recyclables can be disposed.

You’ll also need proof of address to be able to tip.

The council is also urging residents to consider if any visit to a recycling centre is really necessary as lengthy queues are expected and no one will be permitted to join queues after closing time.

Residents will be only be able to dispose of general waste, cardboard and compostable garden waste and social distancing will be in force.

No bulky items like furniture and white goods, electricals, building materials, wood or rubble will be accepted as restrictions on people moving around the site will be in operation.

It’s cars only too. No vans or trailers.

The re-opening of recycling and waste centres will be welcome for many people and hopefully help keep fly tipping down. However, with restrictions in place not permitting vans or certain types of rubbish, fly tipping may still still be a problem for a long time to come.
