Renfrewshire Couincil has isued the following information about work taking place at two of its recycling centres between 4 and 9 February.

Underwood Road, Paisley

On Saturday 4 February, there will be works at the Underwood Road site in Paisley as our contractor undertakes cable pulling works at the rear of the service area.

There will be safety cones on the main access road into the depot and the works area will be fenced off, with some of the works taking place on Monday 6 February.

Access to the recycling centre for residents will be maintained, but we would ask anyone visiting to take care when entering and leaving the site.

Middleton Road, Linwood

Following our £350,000 award from the Scottish Government’s Recycling Improvement Fund, civil engineering works are required at Linwood to facilitate the planned upgrades to the recycling infrastructure.

Therefore, the site will be closed on Wednesday 8 and Thursday 9 February and residents will need to use one of our other recycling centres.

The permit application process will be updated to direct anyone in a van or car with a trailer to Underwood Road in Paisley for the duration of the works – and they will still need to apply for the permit in advance.

A member of the waste team will be on site at Linwood to advise residents of the closure if they do not know already, but signage will be on site and on Middleton Road in advance, the permit application and council website will be updated, and the closure will be advertised on the appropriate council social media channels.

We anticipate the site being open as normal on Friday 10 February.
