Detailed plans are being drawn up by Aberdeen City Council and its waste contractor SUEZ to safely reopen household waste and recycling centres.
The Scottish Government are adding visits to household waste and recycling centres to its list of essential journeys and these centres are due to re-open across Scotland from 1st June.
Waste and recycling centres were closed following the introduction of Scottish Government restrictions to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. Visiting these was not on the list of essential journeys and therefore was not considered to be a reasonable excuse to leave your home.
Some changes will be necessary to maintain safety and maintain physical distancing. These will likely include changed or reduced opening hours, restrictions on the type or volume of materials accepted at sites, and traffic restrictions.
The council will provide more information about reopening arrangements between now and when these centres reopen.
