  • Guidelines for using our civic amenity sites

    Our civic amenity sites at Agnes Street, Springfield Avenue and Cregagh Road are open.

    We have temporary arrangements in place to protect your and our staff's health and safety, in line with the current public health advice on coronavirus (COVID-19).

    Access to civic amenity sites

    • Cars and pedestrians can access all our civic amenity sites. A maximum limit of two cars on site applies. There is a one way system in place at Cregagh Road.
    • Vans and light goods vehicles can't access any of the civic amenity sites. If you have a van or light goods vehicle please use one of our recycling centres.

    • There may be some queues and delays, so please co-operate with any traffic arrangements in place and the instructions from staff.
    • The number of users on site at any one time will be restricted to maintain social distancing. 
    • You will be responsible for unloading your own waste to maintain social distancing from staff and other site users. If you have a large amount of waste or if you need help with a bulky item, we suggest that you use a recycling centre instead and bring a passenger.
