Household Waste Recycling Centres (Tidy tips)

Tidy tip redevelopment

Thorn Turn Household Waste Recycling Centre open

The Thorn Turn Household Waste Recycling Centre is now complete. The area which is located between the A5 just south of Chalk Hill and Thorn Road that runs from the A5 to the A5120 – has been turned into a new multi-use site that includes a new Household Waste Recycling Centre (tidy tip) and highways depot.

The new facility has replaced the French's Avenue recycling centre and Brewers Hill depot. It is hoped that the move will also help to reduce town traffic, as well as making it easier to get to.

Pay by weight and resale shop

The Thorn Turn site now offers a 'pay by the weight', affordable recycling and waste disposal service to traders. There is also a resale shop on site.
