Residents reminded to only make essential trips to the tip

Press Release: 06/05/2020

 



Tameside residents are being thanked for adhering to the new traffic control and social distancing rules at Bayley Street Household Waste Recycling Centre.
 
And they are reminded to only visit if it is absolutely essential. 
 
Bayley Street Household Waste and Recycling Centre in Stalybridge reopened on 2 May but with new measures in place to protect residents and staff during the coronavirus pandemic.
 
The centre is open every day from 8am  to 6pm for local households to dispose of items that cannot be disposed of or recycled in the normal domestic bin collections. General waste, garden waste, cardboard, wood and bulky items that can be carried by one person without assistance are all accepted. However builders’ rubble and electrical items cannot be disposed of at the moment.
 
Traffic is only allowed to approach from the Ashton end of Bayley Street and visitors need to provide proof of address.
 
Ash Road Household Waste and Recycling Centre in Droylsden will remain closed for the time being - although this will remain under review. 
  
In order to control the number of vehicles accessing the centres at any one time, a temporary traffic control system has been introduced based on odd and even number plates with different days of the week allocated to each. For further details of this traffic control system – and to check which days you can visit depending on whether you have an odd or even number plate – please see www.recycleforgreatermanchester.com.

Tameside Council continues to run a full doorstep bin collections service and people are advised to visit recycling centres only if absolutely necessary.
 
Social distancing measures are in place at Bayley Street, and the number of cars allowed on to the sites will be limited, with one person allowed out of their vehicle to dispose of their waste. Staff will be unable to assist with unloading and no pedestrian access will be permitted.
 
Tameside Council Executive Member Cllr Allison Gwynne, who is responsible for operations and neighbourhoods, said: “A big thank you to Tameside residents for being sensible and only visiting the tip if absolutely necessary.  So far the reopening and the new temporary systems to protect visitors and staff have run very smoothly and we want this to continue – especially over the bank holiday weekend when it could otherwise get too busy.
   
“We’ll be closely monitoring household waste recycling centres to ensure they meet the needs of Tameside residents and we’ll be reviewing as appropriate.”
