If you're planning on going to the tip in Weymouth today - think again.
The recycling centre on Preston Beach Road is closed today and won't be back open till Friday.
It's for essential cleaning and maintenance.
Portland HRC on Easton Road will be unavailable on Tuesday 29, Wednesday 30 and Thursday 31 January, re-opening at 9am on Friday 1 February.
Director of the Dorset Waste Partnership Steve Burdis said:
"The deep clean is part of a planned maintenance programme for all our HRCs built into our contract with operators W&S Recycling. As a result, there is no extra cost for the deep clean treatments.
"We have chosen a relatively quiet time of year and the least busy part of the week to carry out this work, minimising disruption for local people as much as possible. For practical and safety reasons we need to close the site to visitors during this period."
During this time local residents can use any of the Dorset Waste Partnership's 10 other HRCs or hang on to their waste until their local centre re-opens.
