After a period of closure, Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin household recycling centres reopened for domestic waste two weeks ago. But vans, even those with household permits, were barred. From tomorrow morning, Tuesday 19 May, vans with household permits can take non-commercial waste to Craven Arms and the other recycling centres across Shropshire. But not from Shropshire into Telford and Wrekin.
But the good news is that if you have that knackered mattress from a bed you have just refurbished (guilty as charged) or if you need to dump the plaster that has just fallen from your living room wall – I won’t mention any names – you can take it to the tip in van.
You will need a household permit. There are delays on issuing household permits because of everything that is happening.
For the time being Telford and Wrekin will not be accepting Shropshire permits. I understand that is being sorted out.
No commercial waste is allowed. Social distancing rules apply. Expect queues over the bank holiday.
