Salisbury Household Recycling Centre (HRC) will temporarily close from Monday 22 February-Wednesday 24 February inclusive for essential resurfacing works.

As the HRC is usually closed on Thursday and Fridays, this means people will be able to book slots to visit up to Sunday 21 February, and then once again on Saturday 27 February, when the site reopens to the public.

To ensure people in the area still have access to recycling facilities during this time, Amesbury HRC will be open on its usual closure days that week, Tuesday 23 and Wednesday 24 February, and its opening hours will be extended from 10am-4pm to 9am-5pm from Monday 22 February to Friday 26 February.

Current COVID restrictions mean that the council has had to reduce visitor numbers at HRCs. As spaces are limited, all visitors to HRCs must book in advance as this ensures that residents and staff safely socially distance. Slots can be booked at household recycling centre bookings.

Cllr Bridget Wayman, Cabinet Member for Waste, said: "We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this temporary closure at Salisbury HRC, but these are essential resurfacing works that cannot be delayed.

"We have arranged for extended opening times at Amesbury HRC during the works, so anyone that has to make an essential trip should be able to book a visit to this site during the Salisbury closure.

"I'd like to thank our residents for their patience during this short closure period, and we look forward to Salisbury HRC reopening soon for people to book visits."
