Changes made to Waste and Recycling Centre booking rules

Households can now book a slot and visit the County’s six Waste and Recycling (WRC) sites once every seven days, rather than every two weeks.

The change has been made following the successful re-opening of the Pembrokeshire County Council facilities using a strict booking only system last month.

The Council is constantly reviewing the guidelines and procedures on site to ensure they are able to be run in a safe manner for staff and public.

Changes to guidelines will be implemented where and when possible.

In a further change, Pembrokeshire households can now book a slot, if one is available, up to 4pm the day before.

Residents are reminded that only cars and small vans are currently allowed.

No high-sided vehicles, large vans (such as Transit or equivalent) or trailers are currently permitted.

The service remains for households only at this time and therefore commercial vehicles and those with commercial signage are currently not permitted.

Only households who have a pre-booked a 15 minute slot will be admitted to the sites.

Anyone who hasn’t booked a slot will be turned away. Remember – no booking, no entry.

Residents have been thanked for using the booking system, reading and following the guidelines and adhering to social distancing measures at the sites.

Those visiting the WRCs are reminded to display their ID (i.e. utility bill) in the windscreen for the staff to check and to bring their booking confirmation where possible.

Plans of the sites are available at https://www.pembrokeshire.gov.uk/waste-bookings

Residents are asked to review the layout plans to help sort their waste and recycling and pack their vehicles correctly in advance of their visit.

This will ensure the smooth operation of the sites continues.
