Safety works at council tip

August 29 2018

FIRE prevention works are taking place at the waste transfer station and Sort It centre in Mangotsfield but public access is not affected.

The works, which started on August 16, will last until Friday October 5 with a minor interruption to the facility from Friday September 21 until Saturday October 6. 

During this time the area for recycling hard/rigid plastics will not be available and anyone bringing hard/rigid plastics will be redirected one of the other three sites at Thornbury, Yate or Little Stoke or advised to bring it to Mangotsfield once the area is reinstalled.

The work is being carried out because the old concrete barriers that are used to separate different waste and recyclable materials in the shed are no longer fit for purpose. 

They will be replaced with new blocks that will improve fire prevention at the site.
