The official opening ceremony takes place on Friday 13 April and then opens to the public from 9am on Monday 16 April. The former site, at Slipper Gowt Lane, will close down at 4pm on Sunday.

The new facility in Bittern Way (nearest postcode is PE21 7RQ) will include a canopy area to protect users from the elements and the county council beleives this investment will save money in the long term.

Cllr Eddy Poll, executive councillor for environmental management, said:

“The opening of this new facility will see a vast improvement in service for residents who want to dispose of their household waste.

“It has seen a considerable investment by the county council but it will mean a big reduction in our everyday running costs compared with the previous site, which was not owned by the council.

“The important thing to emphasise to people is let’s make sure we do not put the facility in danger with the irresponsible disposal of batteries or electrical items.

“We have seen two incidents in recent weeks which could have been very serious but for good fortune and quick response by staff and Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue.”

It will be open seven days a week from 9am until 4pm and only closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
