Community Recycling Centres in a number of neighbouring authorities will be closed over Christmas, due to industrial action. When this has happened in the past, it has led to an influx of residents from outside Warrington trying to dispose of their waste here, which puts a strain and financial burden on the council’s facilities.
Therefore, to ensure Warrington’s CRCs are being used by people who reside in the borough, everyone must show proof of address upon arrival at any of the three CRCs – Gatewarth, Stockton Heath and Woolston.
Gatewarth is open 8am to 6pm throughout the year, Woolston is open 10am to 4pm weekdays and 8am to 6pm at weekends, and Stockton Heath is open 10am to 4pm weekdays and 8am to 4pm at weekends.
All of the centres will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Day.
