RESIDENTS planning to visit Salisbury's household recycling centre today are being warned to expect a two hour wait. 

The centre reopened to the public on Monday with a new postcode entry system. 

In a Twitter post, Wiltshire Council said: "If you are thinking of heading to our #Salisbury HRC please be aware there is an approx 2 hour wait with cars queuing from Eddison road."

Yesterday (May 22), Amesbury's household recycling centre was forced to close early because the queue was "too long".

The centre was due to be open until 7.30pm.

Salisbury's tip will only be open at evenings and weekends.

Residents will be allowed to use the site on their allocated postcode days from between 5.30pm and 7.30pm on weekdays, and 9.30am and 7.30pm at the weekend. It will be closed on Thursdays.

Salisbury Journal:

Amesbury's tip will be open from 3.30pm until 7.30pm, Monday to Friday, and at the weekend from 9.30am to 4.30pm.

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.
