If you’re wondering about where to take your rubbish now that Eastwood recycling centre’s closed because a disgruntled employee trashed the place with a digger, here’s the Council’s latest info:
The nearest centres, which are open as normal, are:
- Sowerby Bridge, Milner Royd, Mearclough, Sowerby Bridge, HX6 3LF
- Halifax, Lee Bank, Ovenden Road, Halifax, HX3 5PN
An additional two bags of refuse per household will be collected on waste collection days in Todmorden and Hebden Bridge while Eastwood is closed.
Temporary garden waste collections for selected parts of Todmorden and Hebden Bridge will take place on alternate Saturdays from 9 August until Eastwood reopens.
Properties on the garden collection route will receive a letter about the service, and a garden sack if they don’t already have one. This is the same approach that was taken when the site was closed for refurbishment last year, but the Council and SITA UK are adding more homes to the collection route this time, depending on accessibility for the collection vehicle.
Several community clean up days will take place during the closure period to help remove residents’ bulkier items. People who live in the areas where these are happening will be informed in advance and bulky waste will be removed on a specified day.
The digger driver has been charged with criminal damage.
