TENBURY'S household recycling centre is the latest in the area to announce it will reopen – but people should only visit when it's essential.

Worcestershire County Council confirmed the site in Tenbury will reopen from Thursday (May 15) after it was closed when the lockdown rules came into force more than seven weeks ago.

The tip will be open on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays between 8am and 6pm, but the county council said there will be restrictions in place.

People wishing to dispose of rubbish are told that the journey must be essential, meaning they "must only visit if their waste or recycling cannot be stored at home safely or disposed of safely by other means".

It comes as the site in Craven Arms also announced that it would reopen.

Shropshire Council said: "We're working hard to ensure Shropshire is kept as clean and safe as possible. In partnership with Veolia, our recycling and waste contractor, we've decided to reopen all five of our household recycling centres on Tuesday, May 5.

"To ensure the safety of the public and Veolia’s staff, we're opening for essential use only. This is for residents who have a problem with storing too much waste. Non-essential use puts yourself, other members of the public and our staff at risk from spreading the infection.

"Veolia is operating with the following rules. Specific site rules follow underneath. Please ensure that you read and follow this guidance when deciding to visit."

In Herefordshire, the centre in Leominster will also reopen in the coming days.

Herefordshire Council spoke about similar measures being in place to those in Craven Arms and Tenbury, with strict social distancing measures to be in place when it reopens on Saturday.
