New waste disposal site opened.

A NEW public waste recycling and disposal site is now open to the public in Whitley.

The new facility in Bar Road has been designed to reduce queuing times and create a "user friendly" disposal point .

As well as rubbish recycling, people can take green waste, aluminium cans, metal and building materials.

There were more than 269,000 visits to the previous unit last year and that figure is expected to rise to more than 300,000 this year.

Cllr John McNicholas, chairman of the environment and transportation policy team, said: "This is a superb new facility and anyone who visits the site cannot fail to be impressed, not only with the layout and space, but also with the thought that has gone into its design and operation.

"The people of the city are now very well served with a first-class facility that is user- friendly and will help deal with the increasing demand from those using it."

The site is open from 8am until 8pm until October 31.

Transit vans or large trailers will only be admitted by appointment and people should ring in advance on 0500 834333.
