“Because we need to continue with social distancing, initially we will have to restrict what we accept to just garden waste and wood.”

He urged people not to worry about slots filing up quickly, adding that more slots would be available.

He added the council would be looking to take other kinds of waste over the next few weeks.

Those visiting the sites will need to bring identification and proof of residence in the county and will be asked to take their own garden waste and wood from their cars to the skips.

Pick-up trucks or vans will not be allowed at the sites.
