From Tuesday 1 November 2022 until mid-January 2023, works at Linford Household Waste and Recycling Centre will mean we have fewer containers for some types of waste, or they may not be in their usual location. During opening hours from 8am till last entry at 3:45pm you can still dispose of all accepted types of waste, but there may be longer queues at some containers – we apologise for any inconvenience. Please ask a member of staff if you need help to find the right container.
