Tip closed until June
Published on: 30 Jan 2017
THE council tip in Carsons Road, Mangotsfield, is shut for four months for improvements.
This means people from the area will need to go to Yate or Stoke Gifford to dispose of household waste from February 1 to May 31.
The work at the site is aimed at improving traffic flow in and around the recycling centre and changes to the yard in preparation for more changes to refuse collection - including smaller black wheels bins - later in the year.
A spokesman said closing the centre to the public was necessary for safety reasons, although the tip will still be used by council collection vehicles to unload household waste after collections.
The three other Sort It recycling centres in South Gloucestershire will be open as usual, 8.30am - 4.30pm seven days a week.
Thornbury - Short Way, BS35 3UT
Yate - Collett Way, BS37 5NL
Little Stoke - Station Road, BS34 6HP
The centres are open only to South Gloucestershire residents whose vehicles have been registered. This can be done at www.southglos.gov.uk/sortitreg.
