During the last 18 months Doncaster’s six Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) have seen an unprecedented level of use, with more people recycling and using the sites than ever before.
To improve the customer experience and carry out essential repairs, all of the sites will now undergo essential maintenance for a period of eight weeks starting from 13 September 2021.
To minimise disruption for residents, only one site will be closed at any time whilst contractors, FCC Environment, undertake important repairs as quickly and as safely as possible.
All work is expected to be completed by 9 November 2021.
Cllr Mark Houlbrook, Cabinet Member for Sustainability and Waste, said: “I’d like to thank residents for using the HWRC sites to recycle their waste responsibly in what has been a very busy and exceptional time for waste collection and disposal.
“Now that the sites are operating as normal again, we will be doing some essential maintenance to ensure we can continue to offer residents the best experience when visiting.
“The works have been planned so that when one site is closed, others will remain open, so if your local HWRC is closed you will be able to travel to your next nearest site.
“I’d like to thank people for their patience during this time.”
Closure dates for each affected site are as follows (dates inclusive):-
- Balby Monday 13 September – Friday 17 September
- Carcroft Monday 20 September – Friday 24 September
- Conisbrough* Monday 27 September - Friday 1 October
- Hatfield Monday 4 October - Friday 8 October
- Rossington Tuesday 12 October – Tuesday 19 October
- Armthorpe Monday 1 November – Tuesday 9 November
During this period, any resident with a vehicle permit for a closed HWRC will be allowed to use any of the other five sites run by Doncaster Council.
