You must be registered to use Calverton recycling facility from today


A controversial scheme that bans unregistered vehicles from using a recycling facility in Calverton comes into force today.

Nottinghamshire County Council, who runs the site in Hollinwood Lane, have said only those signed up to their registration scheme will be able to use the site from September 1.

The council say the scheme will ensure only people from across the county use the facility and will help cut down the amount of waste being handled by the facility each year.

Councillor Jim Creamer, chairman of the county council’s environment and sustainability committee, said: “Because of the closeness of many of our recycling centres to the borders of the county, a significant number of users come from outside Nottinghamshire

“In 2014/15, around 85,000 tonnes of waste was deposited at our recycling centres. Stopping out-of-county residents from using Nottinghamshire’s sites should have a significant impact on overall tonnages, and therefore associated disposal costs.

“An additional benefit is that it could also improve waiting times at the centres for Notts residents.”

The simple registration process can be completed online at the county council’s website, or by calling the customer service centre on 0300 500 80 80.
