Residents are advised that Shaw Road Household and Waste Recycling Centre (tip) will be temporarily closed this autumn for essential improvement works.

It will be closed to the public from Monday 9 October to Friday 27 October. Anchor Lane HWRC will be open as usual with additional staff on site to support users.

As an additional option during this time, a temporary waste and recycling centre will be available at the park and ride car park off Showell Road for essential journeys only.

The temporary site will have a limited capacity and residents will not be able to dispose of some types of waste, but staff will be available to assist and make sure delays are kept to a minimum. 

As with the closure of Anchor Lane earlier this summer, the essential works are being carried out to significantly improve on site facilities, improving health, safety and welfare.

They will also help the council to improve the way the site operates in the future for residents, including providing increased capacity and improved recycling facilities.

The temporary site at the park and ride car park off Showell Road will be available from 9am to 3pm, 7 days a week and will have a reduced capacity for types of waste.
