RESIDENTS in Calder Valley are being warned that the council-run recycling centre at Eastwood, Todmorden will be closed for the next five months during safety improvements.
The council has told people they can leave extra bags of waste on collection days and ‘clean up’ days are planned in the coming months for the removal of bulky items.
There are alternative recycling depots in Sowerby Bridge, Halifax, Brighouse and Elland.
Bulky waste, for example beds, cookers or three piece suites, can be taken for a charge of £10, by visiting www.calderdale.gov.uk or ringing 0845 245 7000.
When the Eastwood site reopens it will have a new one-way system to reduce queues, clear separation of public and operational areas to improve safety and more space for vehicles.
