Southern Recycling Centre changes opening hours

Fri, 14 Jun 2019

The opening time of the Southern Recycling Centre (SRC) will be pushed an hour forward to 10am from next Monday.
It comes after health and safety experts advised that it was ‘unacceptable’ to have ‘hook wagons’ at the facility whilst it’s open to the public.
The large vehicles will now have a ‘two hour window’ before 10 am to offload waste at the site.
The SRC board says the move was necessary to comply with safety procedures, but accept the change may inconvenience some.
It’s exploring options to keep the site open later on certain days as compensation for the lost hour.
The reuse area remains closed due to structural problems with the building, whilst work is ongoing to open it ‘as soon as practicably possible’.
