Warlingham Community Recycling Centre, Bond Road
Temporary closure for essential maintenance works
23 May – end July 2016
Letter from SUEZ Recycling and Recovery UK Ltd:
I am writing to inform you that, on completion of the maintenance works currently underway at the Caterham Community Recycling Centre, we will be carrying out essential maintenance works at the Warlingham Community Recycling Centre, Bond Road, so that we can continue to provide this valued local recycling facility for residents.
The site will be temporarily closed during the works which will include:
- Resurfacing and new road markings
- Replacing the fencing, site gates, kerbing, bollards, height barrier and container stops
- Repairing the boundary wall
- Updating the site office and staff welfare facilities
During this period, residents with household waste are asked to use the Caterham Community Recycling Centre, Chaldon Road, CR3 5PG, which is around 3 miles from the Warlingham facility. Residents with non-household waste (plasterboard, refillable gas bottles, tyres and rubble) are asked to use the Earlswood Community Recycling Centre, Horley Road, RH1 6PN which is around 12 miles away.
There will be a banner and posters at the recycling centre from Tuesday 19 April advertising the temporary closure and our staff will be handing out flyers to customers. In addition, we will be providing posters to local community venues, placing adverts in the local papers and using online advertising to ensure as many residents as possible are made aware of the temporary closure. We would also be grateful if you could share this information with your members and, if you would like a copy of the poster with information about the temporary closure to display locally, please let me know.
The recycling centre will reopen at the end of July on completion of the works, and we will contact you again nearer the time to confirm the date.
When the site reopens it will close on Sunday and Monday. This is part of changes that have been made to the community recycling centre service across Surrey. These changes are needed to achieve cost savings so that Surrey County Council can provide essential services like Adult Social Care in the face of increasing demand and reduced Government funding. Further information about the changes is available at surreycc.gov.uk/recycling
If you have any queries about the works, please do not hesitate to contact me.
