Residents are being advised that one of the city’s Household and Waste Recycling Centres (tips) will be temporarily closed for a fortnight this summer for essential improvement works.

Anchor Lane HWRC will be closed to the public from Monday (24 July) to 7 August.

Shaw Road HWRC will remain open and additional staff will be on site to assist visitors and make sure delays are kept to a minimum.

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.

While Anchor Lane is temporarily closed, residents are encouraged to use Shaw Road for their waste and recycling. 

The site is open seven days a week from 8am to 4pm and extra staff will be available to help customers.
