TWO household waste recycling centres in Ryedale are to reopen.

The sites at Malton and Wombleton will reopen tomorrow (Tuesday). Thornton-le-Dale reopened earlier this month.

Cllr Andrew Lee, Executive Member for Waste Management, said: “It is great to see all but one of the sites reopening, and I would like to thank the North Yorkshire residents for their understanding, and for playing their part by continuing to recycle and dispose of their waste responsibly and only visiting the sites when they can’t store their waste at home.

"All the sites that have reopened so far have been managed well by our contractor Yorwaste with new controls to keep the public and staff safe. We would like to remind residents that we are currently unable to accept trailers or commercial customers at any of the sites.”


Social distancing must be observed, with people remaining at least two metres apart at all times.

Hand sanitising facilities at sites are limited, so people are advised to wear gloves on site and are reminded to wash their hands before and after attending an HWRC.

The next five household waste recycling centres to reopen are:

  • Malton, Pasture Lane, Malton, YO17 6BT
  • Northallerton, Yafforth Road, Northallerton, DL7 0LG
  • Ripon, Dallamires Crescent, Dallamires Lane, Ripon, HG4 1TT
