The Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham has stressed the importance for people to still follow lockdown measures and asking that they only make essential trips to a waste or recycling centre. He said “While we are reopening centres, this is not a return to normal,” 

“We would ask the public to limit their journeys and only travel to a household waste and recycling centre if it is absolutely essential to do so.

“If the situation becomes unmanageable we may have to reassess this decision, but that is not something we want to do and, I hope, will not become necessary.
