Booking a Recycling Centre time slot

Find out how to book a time slot online for a Recycling Centre in Suffolk as part of a phased re-opening. 

Phased re-opening of Recycling Centres

Recycling Centres have re-opened following closure due to coronavirus (COVID-19).

You need to book a time slot online to visit your local Recycling Centre as part of this phased re-opening.

Using a booking system will:

  • reduce the waiting times of visitors to each Recycling Centre
  • help manage traffic to avoid a dangerous build-up of cars on the roads

Please do not come to a Recycling Centre without a booking. 

You must not visit a Recycling Centre if you or anyone in your household: 

  • has tested positive for COVID-19
  • has COVID-19 symptoms
  • are shielding or at higher risk of coronavirus

Harleston one-way system – confused? You’re not the only one!

If you are thinking of popping into Harleston to do a bit of shopping, don’t be put off by the hoo-hah about the new pedestrianised one-way system. All is explained in the documents below.

Try it for yourself first and then tell South Norfolk District Council what you think – good and bad. We need to support our local towns and local businesses and they need feedback.

Metfield Stores – Extended opening hours

Despite the lockdown – or more likely because of it – our village shop is going from strength to strength. Staffed by a dedicated team of volunteers and the cheerful and hardworking manager, Sue Mead, Metfield Stores continues to offer a wide range of goodies as well as the basics – and all at reasonable prices. 

We are grateful to all the new volunteers who came forward to fill the gaps when several of the regulars became vulnerable, as well as to those who felt able to continue. This has allowed the shop to serve you throughout the pandemic.

As from today, Monday 15 June, we are able again to extend our opening hours (see below). We value our customers and volunteers and encourage you to continue to shop in Metfield even though some Covid-19 restrictions are easing. 

NEW – extended opening hours for your convenience!

Saturday: 8.30am to 2pm  Sunday: 10am to 12.30pm
