The council's household waste recycling centre (HWRC) on Slag Lane between Leigh and Lowton is now open again.
The busy site has undergone a month long upgrade to ensure facilities for the public and recycling operatives were up to standard. Residents will see a more efficient process and the staff on site will be able to process waste much more effectively.
Slag Lane HWRC is open daily from 8am to 9pm, and residents with cars can visit it to recycle a wide variety of domestic materials:
Facilities on site allow for the recycling of paper, cardboard, books, directories, shoes, plastic bottles, glass bottles/jars, cans/foil, metals, textiles, electrical items, 'TetraPak' drinks cartons, engine oil, car batteries, timber, garden waste, bricks, rubble and soil.
