Chesterfield Household Waste Recycling Centre

The household waste recycling centre re-opened on Monday 18 May, but there are new procedures you will need to follow before visiting - please see here to find out when you would be allowed in.

When you can visit

You can only visit the household waste recycling centre based on your vehicle numberplate and the date. 

Vehicles will be allowed into recycling centres on certain days depending on whether the last number on their number plate is odd or even. Vehicles with 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 as the last number in their number plate will be allowed in on even numbered dates in the month and those with 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 as the last number will be allowed in on odd numbered dates in the month.

Even last number on your numberplate = Even date

Odd last number on your numberplate = Odd date

Please be prepared to queue; social distancing measures will be in place and fewer vehicles will be allowed access to the site at any one time.

Vans and vehicles with trailers are now also allowed into the recyclng centres (less than 3.5 tonnes and trailers less than 2 metres long).
