£42m recycling centre opens for business

A recycling centre which cost £42m to build has been opened by the Bath and North East Somerset Council.

The centre in Keynsham  will be used by the council and the public.

The last part  of the centre to be finished is the operations area for more than 100 recycling vehicles, and where 200 staff are now based.

The hub also includes a store for salt and grit that can be used on roads between

Bath and North East Somerset Council cabinet member Tim Ball said that by bringing together the collection, disposal and processing of recycling they will be able to “reduce general waste and operational costs and meet future demand from an increasing population”.

The section where people can bring their waste has been open since last autumn, along with a reuse shop that sells items brought to the centre.

The council’s vehicles are all serviced on site at an MOT centre which can also be used  by the public.
