Viridor Coronavirus COVID-19 update
How Viridor is tackling the spread of Coronavirus
These are challenging times for us all and like everyone, we are making every effort to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus, whilst working hard to ensure continuity of essential services.
We are staying very close to the advice from Government to make sure we are doing the right thing - a national strategy only works if everyone adopts it, so we are following the latest Government guidelines.
Some Household Waste Recycling Sites (HWRS) have reopened, and we continue to work hard to ensure that we can continue to operate our Energy Recovery Facilities, Landfills and Material Recycling Facilities and will notify our customers as soon as possible should this situation change.

At all sites, we have implemented additional measures to prioritise the health, welfare and risk of exposure for our employees, customers and essential visitors.
Our customer support teams across the business are now working remotely and as such we would ask for contact to be made by email rather than by telephone in the first instance.

Please bear in mind the fast changing situation and additional email traffic at this time may mean you wait a little longer than normal for a reply.
Finally, thank you to all our customers and suppliers for their ongoing support and our dedicated staff for their incredible efforts during these unprecedented times.
