Official opening of District Council’s new waste and recycling facility

Posted on: 13 July 2016

On Friday 8 July, Neil Parish, Member of Parliament for the Tiverton and Honiton Constituency, officially opened the District Council’s new waste and recycling facility at Hitchcock’s Business Park.  Situated between Uffculme and Willand on the road leading to the A38 and J27 of the motorway, it is in an ideal location for access to both the rest of the District and to the County Council’s landfill site at Broadpath.

Waste and recycling teams moved into the new premises on Monday 13 June and, following a very smooth transfer from the Council’s previous bases in the centre of Tiverton, the site is now fully operational. There has been virtually no disruption to service and the benefits of moving to the new purpose-built site are clearly evident.

The opening was attended by several Members and Officers of the Council, together with the local site owner.  Leader of the Council, Clive Eginton, welcomed all and gave a special thank you to Stuart Noyce, Waste & Transport Manager, and all those who worked hard to ensure the move was a success.

Neil Parish said how pleased he was to see the Council’s recycling rate hit over 50%. He also commented on how smoothly the move had gone in such a short  time and how great it was to see our waste and recycling services under one roof.

The opening was followed by a cream tea with homemade cakes supplied by the Waste and Recycling Officers.
