Cottesmore recycling centre is to close for two weeks from 12th to 26th June 2017 to allow sections of the main yard to be resurfaced.
The Cottesmore centre receives close to 1,000 visits each week and resurfacing work is needed to maintain concrete hardstanding areas where people walk and drive, which have become worn over time.
These concreting works will take approximately one week to complete, with a further week required to let the concrete set fully before the site can be reopened to members of the public and heavy collection vehicles.
During this time, the recycling centre at North Luffenham (usually closed from Tuesday to Thursday) will be open every day, ensuring the county continues to have a civic amenity site open seven days a week.
So, from 12th to 26th June, North Luffenham recycling centre will be open from 10am to 6pm every day, with extra site staff transferred from Cottesmore to North Luffenham to help receive materials and assist members of the public.
Rutland County Council operates both Cottesmore and North Luffenham recycling centres, which are also known as civic amenity sites or tips.
Both centres dispose of extra household waste and recycling, green waste from your garden, broken electrical goods, white goods and unwanted furniture. They can be used by anyone who lives in Rutland, although a permit is required.
Full details of what materials can and can’t be disposed of at your local recycling centre, along with details of how to apply for a permit, can be found on our Civic amenity sites page.
