Peterborough City Council are expanding services at their Household Recycling Centre in Fengate this week opening its' doors to vans and trailers. The move follows following a review of the initial re-opening.

The council say while the site has been busy, there is enough capacity to extend its use to vans and trailers.

Access will initially be only allowed for vans and trailers that pre-book visits via an online booking system that has gone live today (1 June)The first visits will take place from Wednesday (3 June).

Councillor John Holdich, leader of Peterborough City Council, said

Since the re-opening of the site, the vast majority of users have been extremely patient, polite to staff and diligent about following the Government’s Covid-19 guidance. Due to this we feel we have some extra capacity to be able to extend usage to vans and trailers that would usually have a permit.
