Three more waste drop sites to open across the city

Published Friday, 14 January 2022

A further three drop sites will be opening to help more residents manage waste amidst the bin lorry driver strike.

The sites will be off Wellington Street, the Coventry Community Resource Centre off Aintree Close, and the Tom White Waste site off Judds Lane, increasing the spread of sites across the city so residents can get to the sites more easily.

The Tom White Waste site off Judds Lane will open from Saturday 15 January. It will be open 12noon – 4pm Monday to Friday, and 10am-4pm on weekends.

The sites at Wellington Street and the Coventry Community Resource Centre will open from Monday 17 January.

These two new sites and the existing six will all be open from 8am-4.30pm seven days a week.

There are no height restriction barriers on the three new sites.

So far, more than 80,000 cars have visited the six drop sites and more than 292,000 black bags have been dropped off.

Residents will receive a green-lidded household waste bin collection every other week while the strike by bin lorry drivers goes ahead. Residents who usually have a collection on a Wednesday will have a collection on Tuesday and residents who usually have a collection on a Friday will have their collections on Thursdays. Collections of household waste for people who have a collection on Tuesdays and Thursdays will go ahead as normal.
