Normanton recycling centre closes on Sunday 17 September

11/09/2017, PR8645

Wakefield Council is reminding residents that the Normanton Household Waste Recycling Centre at Welbeck will close permanently on Sunday (17 September).

The closure is planned as part of the long-term waste contract in partnership with Shanks Waste Management. The planning permission for the site at Welbeck expires in May, therefore the facility needs to close to allow for it to be restored.

Cllr Maureen Cummings, Wakefield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Communities, said: “We want to remind residents that the recycling centre at Welbeck closes on Sunday.

“We ask residents to use our modern Household Waste Recycling Centres in Glasshoughton, Wakefield and South Kirkby which have been designed to handle and recycle more of our customers waste.

“We will continue to closely monitor the facilities and make extra skips made available if required.”

Following the closure, the Council will be closely monitoring the Welbeck site to help deter flytipping, including the use of covert CCTV.
