In a statement, council added: “All the usual recycling materials can now be accepted on site (with the exception of soil and rubble).

“Social distancing measures are in place on site, including gate controls to limit car access and householders are required to unload their own waste. This could result in queues at times on sites.

“Cars only will be allowed access, no vans. Cars with trailers of green waste will be allowed access, no vans.”
