Honiton’s Sutton Barton Recycling Centre is to remain open through the national lockdown – although the resale area will close.

The advice right now is for us to stay at home as much as possible and only to make journeys out of the house for essential reasons only.

Therefore, Devon County Council are encouraging you to think about how you can reduce the amount of waste you create.

• Try to postpone projects at home that produce waste that would normally require you to make journeys to recycling centres

• If you do produce waste that you would normally dispose of at a recycling centre, can you temporarily store it at home safely instead, until we’re out of the current lockdown restrictions

• Remember that garden waste and other recyclable material can be removed as part of your usual curb side collections

If you must make a visit to your nearest recycling centre, please expect them to be operating differently during this lockdown period.

Restrictions are in place, including social distancing, which may lead to queues.

If queues do start forming, we may need to restrict vehicles from joining the queues towards the end of the day and if queues become a safety hazard on the public highway, we may need to temporarily close the site.

If you are displaying any of the Covid-19 symptoms – the high temperature, new and continuous cough, or a change in your usual sense of smell or taste – please do not leave your house.

You should self-isolate and arrange for a coronavirus test as quickly as possible.
