Sutton Green recycling centre moves

suttonrecyclingcentreSutton Green recycling centre on Sutton Green is to be moved after local Lib Dems responded to complaints about fly-tipping.

After a public consultation councillors decided to move the recycling bins to a nearby location and return that corner of Sutton Green to grass.

Cllr Lester Holloway said: “The fly-tipping was a real blight on the Green and efforts to catch the culprits proved difficult as they evaded the CCTV camera we installed.

“We wanted to ensure that we kept up the council’s good recycling service so the decision was to move the recycling centre a short walk down the High Street where fly-tipping is less likely to occur. However we will continue to monitor this very closely.”
