People in Hartlepool are being advised that access to some of the recycling facilities at the council’s household waste recycling centre will be affected over the next four weeks while essential maintenance is carried out at the site.

The work at the site, in Burn Road, will start today, and during the week the soil and rubble skips will be out of operation.

We apologise for any inconvenience which this essential maintenance will cause and we will do everything possible to keep disruption to a minimum.

Helen Beaman, environment co-ordinator

The other skips will not be affected.

The soil and rubble skips are expected to be back in use next week, so people are advised to retain any soil and rubble until then.

The recycling banks for textiles, shoes, paper, plastics, glass and cans will also not be available next week but are expected to be back in use the following week.

In the meantime, to dispose of these materials, people are advised to use the recycling banks at the following other locations around the town:

• Asda in Marina Way – paper, glass, cans, textiles, shoes, plastic, food and drinks cartons.

• Fens Shops in Catcote Road – paper, glass, cans and plastic.

• King Oswy Drive Shops in King Oswy Drive – glass and cans.

• Morrisons in Clarence Road – glass, cans, paper and textiles.

• Seaton Park Car Park in Station Lane, Seaton Carew – paper, glass, cans, shoes and plastic.

• Tesco in Burn Road – paper, glass, cans, textiles, shoes, books, food and drinks cartons.

Regular updates will also be placed on the council’s recycling page on facebook at facebook.com/hartlepoolrecycling and on Twitter.

Helen Beaman, the council’s environment co-ordinator, said: “We apologise for any inconvenience which this essential maintenance will cause and we will do everything possible to keep disruption to a minimum.

“We would like to thank people in advance for their patience and co-operation and would also ask people to please take extra care when they are at the centre while the work is being carried out.

“We will be issuing regular bulletins to keep people updated.”
