THE recycling centre in Worsbrough will close next week for essential repair work.

The Worsbrough venue has seen significant extra demand since the start of the pandemic.

These repairs, originally due to take place last year, were delayed in order to minimise any further disruption.

The works will include a number of improvements including painting, new and improved signage, and removal of outdated equipment which will all help visitors move through the sites and deposit their waste more quickly.

Matt Gladstone, executive director for place, said: “We’re aware there may be some disruption caused by these closures, however we cannot delay the repairs any longer.

“We hope people will understand the importance of making sure our recycling centres remain safe for both people visiting them and people working there.

“There will also be a noticeable improvement to the appearance of the sites and how easy it is to find your way around them which will improve the experience of those visiting them.

“We’ll be keeping our social media pages and website updated if there are any changes to the timetable and we’ll issue updates as each site reopens.”
