Household Waste & Recycling Centres - Update

Household Waste & Recycling Centres - All Recycling Centres across Cornwall have reopened with the majority of sites operating 7 days per week 9am - 4pm, including Saltash.

Access is permitted on a rota basis depending on your vehicle registration e.g.

If the last digit of your vehicle number plate is even–  0, 2, 4, 6 or 8 - then you may only visit a HWRC on an even date of the month, e.g. 4th, 6th, 8th, 10th of June etc.

For example, if your number plate is RL34 JGS, the last digit is 4 – an even number – so  you may visit on even dates of the month.

Even numbers include the number 0 (zero).

If the last digit of your number plate is odd - 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9 - then you may only visit an HWRC on an odd date of the month, e.g. 5th, 7th, 9th, 11th of June etc.

If you have a personalised number plate the last digit of your number plate indicates the date you may visit the sites.
