Rutland County Council have announced the reopening of at least one of the county's civic amenity sites, or recycling centres.

On its website Rutland County Council announced that, "North Luffenham HWRC will open six days a week (Tuesday to Sunday), from 10.00am to 4.00pm."

The North Luffenham Household Waste Recycling Centre's address is: Willoughby Road, Morcott, Rutland LE15 9DW.

The reopening will begin on Tuesday 19th May.

The council added:

Staffing constraints mean it is not possible to reopen both of Rutland’s HWRCs at this time. North Luffenham has been chosen because it is larger than its sister site at Cottesmore. The Council has also taken advice from Leicestershire Police regarding the potential for queueing traffic on the B668 between Cottesmore and Burley.

There will be restrictions which affect the reopening of the tip, however.

  • A maximum of four vehicles unloading on-site at a time, with no more than two persons per vehicle
  • Visitors must observe social distancing and stay two metres away from each other and site staff at all times
  • The site will close for 15 minutes at 12.00pm, 2.00pm and 4.00pm each day so that it can be cleaned
  • No trailers will be accepted on-site because of the need to move vehicles in and out as quickly as possible
  • Visitors are asked to pre-sort their waste and separate out materials like metal, wood and plastics before travelling to the site
  • Staff at the site will provide instructions but cannot help to unload or put waste items into containers

See the Council's website for more information.
