ONE VISIT PER WEEK- NEW RULES FOR HOUSEHOLD WASTE CENTRES INTRODUCED

Published:

Islanders undertaking a spring clean of their homes or gardens will be able to take advantage of changes to the Isle of Wight Council’s tips from today (Monday).

Social distancing measures and restrictions on the number of visits that members of 1 household could make to the civic amenities were introduced in response to the coronavirus pandemic – but new rules mean that residents will now be able to visit the sites once a week for the disposal of waste.

As of today, 2 people will now also be able to unload a vehicle.

The centres, at Lynbottom and Afton Marsh, are still running a booking system, and Islanders who do not book ahead will be refused entry to the sites.

What like the temp £1 parking overnight a few years ago now up to £2 a few years later. Don’t hold your breath this council will do anything to disrupt and take as much as they can. Yeah

Well this will increase fly tipping, why don’t the tip management try thinking . Just booking a tip slot is a pain because when you get there , your in a 2 hour queue . Fantastic organisation. Not!!!!
