Severe winter weather can cause disruptions to household waste and recycling collections. It may also affect the opening times of our household waste recycling centres, Hazel Court HWRC and Towthorpe/Strensall HWRC. Normally, our household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) are open every day, except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

We try to provide our usual services during bad weather, if it's safe to do so.

In the case of severe winter weather:

  • if we have been unable to collect your waste or recycling, we will collect it on your next scheduled waste or recycling collection day
  • we will make allowances for extra waste at your next collection if we were not able to collect your waste at your last collection
  • you can take your waste to Hazel Court HWRC or Towthorpe/Strensall HWRC, but check they're open before travelling
  • you can check for updates via Facebook and Twitter or on local radio stations
