Recycling Centre Temporarily Shut for Cleaning on Portland
7:47am 29th January 2013
If you're planning to go to the tip on Portland today you can't.
The recycling centre on Easton Road is shut for the next three days for cleaning and maintenance.
It will be back open at 9am on Friday.
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.
