Herefordshire residents of Kington and surrounds will soon be able to make use of a new Household Recycling Centre (HRC) to deposit their household waste, and help increase the recycling rate across the county.
The new facility, on Eardisley Road, opposite the health centre opens to the public on Saturday 9 April 2016 and means residents will no longer have to travel to the site in Leominster. The site will be open to the public Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 8.00am to 6.00pm (closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day)
Residents will be able to deposit recyclable and re-useable materials, including garden waste for composting, furniture for reuse and electrical goods for recycling.
The facility will be operated by the council’s waste management contractor Severn Waste Services who also provide recycling and waste treatment for Herefordshire Council and Worcestershire County Council.
Councillor Harry Bramer, cabinet member contracts and assets at Herefordshire Council, said:
“I’m really pleased we are able to offer this facility to the residents of Kington. It is a long awaited asset and finally completes our excellent network of Household Recycling Centres in every market town and the city of Hereford.”
