Coronavirus waste collection update
Southend Borough Council and its recycling and waste partner Veolia have decided to shut the two household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) due to coronavirus. However, recycling and waste collections will be continuing on your usual collection day.
Both the Stock Road and the Leigh Marshes HWRCs will be shut until further notice, and locals are urged to keep any items they had planned to take there at home until the sites are open, and not simply left with the kerbside collections.
Anyone planning to visit either the Stock Road or the Leigh Marshes HWRCs should ensure that any items that they had planned to take with them are stored responsibly at home until the sites are open again, and not simply left with the kerbside collections. Bulky waste collections can still be booked, please visit www.southend.gov.uk/bulkywaste.
Cllr Carole Mulroney, Cabinet Member for Environment and Planning, said: “As the country continues to adapt to the coronavirus outbreak, it is important here in Southend we do all we can to protect our residents. Following the Prime Minister’s announcement about staying at home, we have taken the decision to close our HWRCs as of today to ensure we adhere to the social distancing measures put in place by the Government, and to ensure we protect our residents, and also council and Veolia staff.”
“I would urge all residents to act responsibly and to not leave bulky waste, or items planned to be taken to the HWRC, with your kerbside collections. This will take up valuable space in the collection vehicles for household waste and we must ensure we work together as a town so that we can continue to provide key services to the most vulnerable residents.”
Bulky waste collections can still be booked over at www.southend.gov.uk/bulkywaste. Make sure to visit www.southend.gov.uk/coronavirus for continued updates on council services, including all waste collections.
