From 6 June 2022 you will have to book a slot to visit Rayleigh Recycling Centre. The booking system will open from 23 May 2022. They have taken this measure following feedback from site users and local residents to address excess queuing and traffic at Rayleigh Recycling Centre, and on the surrounding roads. By trialling a booking system at Rayleigh they hope to improve how we manage this service and reduce queuing at peak times.
As the cost of living crisis continues to go unaided by the government here are some (limited) schemes that may be able to help ease the burden
Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery Scheme
If you're an Essex homeowner with a household income below £30,000, you may be eligible for up to £10,000 of work to make energy efficient improvements to your home.
This could include fitting loft insulation, cavity or solid wall insulation or energy efficient heating (does not include gas or oil). The funding covers the entire cost of the improvements, up to £10,000.
The Government announced in February that an Energy Bill Rebate will be provided to households in England from April 2022 to help protect residents from rising energy costs. This includes a one-off payment of £150 to most households in Council Tax bands A-D.
