Nottinghamshire County Council re-opened Retford Waste Recycling Centre yesterday for access by private cars only. Opening times are 10.00 to 18.00 hrs. Strict measures and traffic control is in place.
There has been an increase in fly tipping in the District, much as is the case nationally. It is to be hoped that the incidence of fly tipping will now decrease. It has to be said however that on the strength of an incident reported to BDC following an incident on Tinker Lane, Barnby Moor, also yesterday, the size of the articles dumped suggested that a van or lorry might have been involved. Hopefully the Recycling Centres will soon accommodate such vehicles as well. (image above of Tinker Lane incident).
