Works to reinstate Blenheim’s waste sorting centre, which was damaged by fire earlier this year, began on Monday 24 June.
While work is underway, Blenheim’s transfer station will become a building site, so a temporary transfer station has been set up at the Greenwaste and Compost Facility, next door to the waste sorting centre.
This means users need to access the temporary transfer station site to use the Blenheim transfer station to dump rubbish. Please be aware that this site will be shared with people delivering greenwaste so it will be busy.
Opening hours will remain the same but the site will be busy, so be prepared to queue. A little bit of patience when entering and exiting will help.
You can still leave official Council bags at the temporary transfer station. To reduce traffic movements through the temporary site we have introduced a Council bag skip at the Resource Recovery Centre, so if you only have rubbish in a Council bag then please use this skip.
The temporary site has been be split in two. One side will be for rubbish (red circle) and the other side for greenwaste/grass (green diamond).
If you are delivering grass or greenwaste you will need to enter the site via George Conroy Drive, over the weighbridges.
