SALISBURY'S tip reopens today, but locals will only be able to use it on certain days as a new postcode entry system is rolled out.

For example, if someone's postcode starts in SP1, they can only visit the sites on May 19, May 21, and so on.

The system has also be put in place for the rest of the county's household waste recycling centres, including Amesbury.

Wiltshire Council says the "easy to use" system is to help limit the number of people on site at any time and ensure social distancing.

People can visit any Wiltshire site they choose, so while people are limited by the days they can attend, they can visit any Wiltshire HRC on these days.

However, there are a number of changes in place to ensure social distancing including:

• Visitors must keep at least two metres from others at all times

• Only one person allowed on bin access steps at any one time

• Visits are restricted to one person per car

• No entry for trailers or large vans over 3.5 tonnes

• The number of parking spaces on each site will be significantly reduced, with vehicles allowed on site on a ‘one in, one out’ basis.

• There will be no pedestrian access

• HRCs cannot accept soil, rubble, plasterboard, textiles or asbestos during this initial reopening phase

• Don’t bring recyclable materials that can be collected through the council’s kerbside recycling collection service

• As we expect that sites will be much busier than normal, if you have a bulky items to depose of please consider using the council’s Bulky Household Waste collection scheme instead
