Ampthill tidy tip update

The newly redeveloped Ampthill Household Waste Recycling Centre in Abbey Lane opened to the public at 9am on Monday, 18 July.

The Ampthill redevelopment is part of a wider investment by the council to modernise and improve Household Waste Recycling Centres across Central Bedfordshire to ensure they are easy to use and equipped to meet future demands due to a growing population.

The site has an improved layout and a modern split-level design that will allow residents to more easily dispose of their waste into containers from an elevated platform. Residents will also be able to recycle a wider range of materials including hard plastics.

Leighton Buzzard Household Waste Recycling Centre in Shenley Hill Road will be the final site to temporarily close for redevelopment. The Leighton Buzzard site will close at 5pm on Sunday, 17 July for up to six months. While Leighton Buzzard is closed the council is encouraging as many residents as possible to use one of the alternative sites in Central Bedfordshire including the Dunstable at French’s Avenue and the newly redeveloped recycling centre in Ampthill. For garden waste residents should use their kerbside garden waste collection or one of these other sites.

For more information about the redevelopment of the Household Waste Recycling Centres or for more advice on disposing of household waste visit the council website
