Barr Environmental Limited in conjunction with South and East Ayrshire Councils are delighted to announce that the Household Recycling Centres at both Heathfield (Ayr) and Garlaff (Skares) are set to reopen on the 1st of June. This follows the latest guidance from First Minister Nicola Sturgeon as we are set to enter Phase one of the Roadmap for a sustainable recovery from the COVID19 crisis. Much collaboration and planning has been put into reopening the sites as both staff and public safety is of paramount importance.
The main safety measures that will be in place are:
Rules apply that are specific to East Ayrshire and South Ayrshire which are as follows:
East Ayrshire – Residents require a Recycling Permit and a booking slot which can be arranged online at the East Ayrshire Website or call: 01563 554400, which should help reduce waiting times.
South Ayrshire – No Permit is required, however, householders are required to bring proof that they live in South Ayrshire through a driving licence or council tax bill. For more information see South Ayrshire Website
We appreciate that with the sites being closed for a long period of time there will be a high volume of people wanting to access the sites, as such they will be very busy in the first few weeks of re-opening. So please allow extra time for your trip, return at another time if possible if long queues are observed and be patient and understanding with our staff as we resume this service as safely as possible for everyone.
