It means anyone thinking of clearing out the garage or attic over the next few weeks will have to put their plans on hold.

The authority has apologised for the inconvenience the closure will cause.

A statement on KCC's Facebook page says: "All Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) will be CLOSED until further notice following the government’s announcement last night.

"We apologise for the inconvenience this will cause."
