Calverton Recycling Centre has now been closed by Nottinghamshire County Council in a bid to stop the spread of coronavirus.
The centre on Hollinwood Lane, is one of 12 being closed by the council during the lockdown.
A spokesman for Nottinghamshire County Council said: “In-line with the Prime Minister’s statement last night, we have taken the decision to close all of our 12 Recycling Centres in Nottinghamshire from today. The sites will remain closed until the lockdown period is lifted.
“Please store items safely until we’re able to re-open the centres and continue to recycle domestic waste into your bins as advised.”
