Cut the queues at our recycling centres
07/06/2016 17:19:00

Since Croydon Council started charging for the kerbside collection of garden waste, the queues at our recycling centres - Factory Lane in central Croydon, Fishers Farm in New Addington and Purley Oaks in Purley - have got much longer. When they get really busy, the long tailbacks cause traffic chaos around the three sites.

Local Conservatives are calling on the Council to extend the opening hours at these three centres during the times of the year when people have large volumes of garden waste to recycle. If we want people to do the right thing and recycle their waste, we can't expect them to queue for an up to an hour to do it.

The current opening hours are:

Factory Lane

Monday to Saturday: 7.30am to 4.30pm

Sunday: 8.30am to 4pm

Fishers Farm

Monday to Friday: 8am to 4pm

Saturday: 9am to 2pm

Sunday: 9am to 1pm

Purley Oaks

Monday to Sunday: 8am to 3.30pm

We are suggesting that from May to October, the opening hours should be:

Monday to Saturday: 8am to 8pm

Sunday: 8am to 4pm

If you agree, you can sign the petition here.
