Recycling centre improvements

Community recycling centre improvements

We've recently undertaken a review of our community recycling centres with particular focus on the physical condition of these sites, their ongoing maintenance liabilities and their ability to conform to current environmental permitting requirements.

As part of this review it's been identified that the Woolston and Gatewarth sites will require further capital investment so that we can renew perimeter fencing, upgrade lighting and install new CCTV and security systems. If we don't undertake these improvements the sites won't meet the standards that the Environment Agency permit requires. Apart from meeting this legal obligation, these improvements will help us reduce the ongoing maintenance levels, maximise our waste processes and enhance the overall user experience.
