RECONSTRUCTION work at Suffolk's largest household waste and recycling centre is now complete.

The work was necessary due to subsidence of the old Foxhall landfill on which the current site is built. While the concrete surface was being reconstructed improvements to the site were also carried out.

A dedicated 'recycling zone' has been provided, clearer signs have been put up, CCTV has been installed and the size of the site has been extended by 15 per cent.

To thank people for their patience during the recent closures and disruption, an official site launch will be held this Saturday.

County councillor Joan Girling will be cutting the site's red ribbon at 11am and free compost will be available to the public throughout the day.

Mrs Girling, member of Suffolk County Council's executive committee, said: "Everyone who uses this site has been very patient during the vital work which has been carried out there. The county council is committed to improving rates of recycling household waste and I am sure that the improvements to the site will make it easier for people to recycle."

The compost will be provided on a self-help basis with people being asked to bring their own bags. Members of the Waste Management team will also be on hand to offer information and tips on recycling and composting.
