The opening hours of Notts County Council’s recycling centres will be extended from today (Saturday) and throughout March with all centres being open from 8am until 6pm.
Notts residents will be able to make the most of the longer opening hours and recycle more of their household waste.
Kevin Parker, from Veolia Environmental Services said: “Now that the nights are getting lighter, Notts residents will have more time to have a good spring clear out and help the local environment at the same time.”
Recycling centres can accept a wide range of items for recycling, including paper, cardboard, cans, aerosols, plastic bottles, glass bottles and jars.
They can also accept electrical and electronic items, furniture, batteries (including car batteries), engine oil, scrap metal, textiles, wood, bric-a-brac, fluorescent tubes and light bulbs, used cooking oil, garden waste and small quantities of soil and hardcore.
