East Yorkshire residents living in Beverley are being invited to a third open exhibition to view plans for a proposed new household recycling centre for Beverley.
From 5pm to 7.30pm, the event will take place in the Education Room at the Treasure House in Champney Road, Beverley.
Weel’s household waste recycling site is prone to flooding since it is located right beside the River Hull. In addition, it is becoming too small to handle the volume of waste that is generated.
Consequently, the East Riding of Yorkshire Council plans to build a new household recycling facility. It is being proposed to be located on the land off Grange Way A164/A1035 road west of Ings Road.
In a statement a spokesperson for the East Riding of Yorkshire said:
“The current household waste recycling site has outlived its location. It also has to be closed to users every time it floods, which is not good for residents or staff.
“The proposed site is much bigger, more spacious, offers better access and can cope with the number of visitors.
“We hope residents will attend these exhibitions as this is a chance to have their say.”
Designed with better access and capacity to cope with the area’s expanding population, the proposed household recycling centre is much larger and more spacious.
Attending the open exhibitions will give residents a chance to view the proposed new scheme, share their opinions, and speak with engineers and recycling officers.
On Monday 31 October, there will be another open exhibition at Beverley Enterprise Centre, on Beck View Road, off Grovehill Road, from 1.30pm to 4.30pm.
This follows the success of the centre’s first exhibition, which was held on Monday 17 October.
In the East Riding, there are ten household waste recycling facilities. FCC Environment manages all of these.
The sites reuse, recycle, or compost nearly 81% of all items taken by the public. The total amount of waste diverted from landfills is 99.8%.
