Modernisation of Forfar Recycling Centre continues

Published on Friday 21 December 2018

Work to redevelop and improve Forfar Recycling Centre continues in the New Year.

The Queenswell Road centre will close on Sunday 6 January to allow work to begin the following day that will make the site more accessible and available to all. It’s anticipated Forfar Recycling Centre will be closed for four weeks.

Signage is in place at the centre to advise of redevelopment work and the temporary closure. Customers are advised to use Arbroath or Montrose centres during this time and can find full details on our Angus recycling centres page.

Forfar’s renewal features prominently in the drive to deliver a modern, comprehensive Angus-wide waste management service that recognises the importance of all residents reducing their carbon footprint through increased recycling. Along with the recently refurbished centres at Arbroath and Montrose, Forfar will open seven days a week and operate longer hours to accept a fuller range of waste and recycling materials.

The investment in Forfar Recycling Centre will ensure it is fit for future use by residents. Its lay-out is being reconfigured to enhance traffic flow and to allow increased capacity for more containers. The redesign will also mean that containers can be moved/removed without the need to close the centre during opening hours, which can cause frustration for the public.

Significant work at and around the site has already taken place as part of a project that started in October, including demolition and resurfacing work. Efforts have been made throughout to keep centre closures to a minimum, but the centre will have to close after the festive period to complete the work.

We apologise for any inconvenience during this time and will publicise the work’s completion date and opening of the redeveloped centre as soon as possible.
