Recycling centre to close

Wollaston Household Recycling Centre will close on Tuesday 30 May 2017 after been given a two year reprieve by the Borough Council of Wellingborough.

The borough council and Wellingborough Norse took over the running of the centre on a trial basis in April 2015, after site owners, Northamptonshire County Council, decided to close it due to central governments cuts.

Norse has run the site successfully for two years, but with no other funding available, the cost of operation has come from the borough council’s reserve budget and a donation from Wollaston Parish Council.

A council spokesperson said: “we know this facility is extremely popular with some local residents so the decision to close it has been a tough one, but we cannot continue to use our reserves to operate it when there is another recycling centre within the borough.”

Other recycling centres are located in Paterson Road, Wellingborough; Northampton Road, Rushden and Ecton Lane, Northampton.

These centres also take black bag, non- recyclable household waste, which cannot be accepted at the Wollaston Centre because the site is not large enough to house the equipment needed.
