The household waste recycling centre at Pocklington is to close for 12 days to allow improvement works to be carried out.

Maintenance and repairs will take place at the site, in Pocklington Lane, Burnby, as well as resurfacing work.

The centre will be closed to the public from Monday 3 August to Friday 14 August to enable the works to be carried out. It is due to reopen on Saturday 15 August at 10am.

During that time, residents are being asked to use the nearby household waste and recycling sites at Holme-Upon-Spalding-Moor and Airmyn, near Goole, instead.

The work is being completed by FCC Environment, which manages the council’s 10 household waste recycling sites in the East Riding.

Councillor Symon Fraser, the council’s portfolio holder for asset management, housing and environment, said: “This is part of an ongoing programme of work at our household waste recycling sites which will improve the site, making it easier for residents to use and increase the potential for greater recycling at the sites.”

The alternative waste and recycling centres are at:

Holme Road, Holme-Upon-Spalding-Moor (YO43 3ED)

Airmyn Road, Airmyn, near Goole (DN14 8LA)

Both centres are open seven days a week, from 10am to 5pm.
