COUNTY council chiefs have issued a plea for people to store waste for household recycling centres where possible after a rise in visitors in recent days.
Household Recycling Centres across Worcestershire have seen an increase in visitors particularly during the good weather last weekend.
Sites remain open during the lockdown with several safety measures in place to protect residents and staff.
Coun Tony Miller, cabinet member for the Environment, said: “The good weather at the weekend provided the opportunity for us to work in our gardens, and Household Recycling Centres across Worcestershire were extremely busy as a result.
“Sites at Droitwich, Pershore and Bilford Road, in Worcester, have had to temporarily close for periods due to volumes of traffic. All have since reopened.
“We ask people to remember the advice to stay home as much as possible to protect communities across Worcestershire from the pandemic.
