The new entrance to the Richmond Resource Recovery Centre opens on Wednesday 8 June 2011.
Vehicles will enter from Fittal Street, replacing the existing entrance on Beach Road.
The realignment is part of a major revamp for the refuse transfer station, which has already provided a new and bigger home for the “re-use” shop. Tasman District Council bought the building two years ago and leases it to the Kahurangi Employment Trust, which runs the recycling operation.
Stage Two of the refurbishment, the new layout, will make it easier for users to separate their recycling and reduce waste going to the landfill. Commercial and private vehicles will also be kept apart.
(Greenwaste will continue to be received and processed at Greenwaste to Zero in Cargill Place.)
