Nether Dallachy recycling centre temporary closure
The landfill site and recycling centre at Nether Dallachy is temporarily closed to the public. This is due to a number of reasons, and is not a permanent closure.
In the main the temporary closing of recycling at Nether Dallachy is due to the level of vehicle queuing and potentially backing up on to the highway, posing a real risk to traffic. Additionally, the landfill site has had to be expanded to accommodate the creation of a new cell for residual waste, and there is increased site traffic as a result.
The access to the site would be restricted if domestic vehicles are allowed to queue, which would slow down waste operations and the knock-on would impact upon kerbside collections.
Finally, there is insufficient staff available to manage and ensure COVID-compliance by domestic users on site, so the decision has been taken to close the recycling centre for the time being until risks related to the pandemic restrictions are past.
