Devon County Council announces new contractor who will run closed-down recycling centre in South Molton.

South Molton Recycling Centre will re-open on Saturday October 3, Devon County Council has confirmed.

The site has been closed by the end of June after South Molton Recycle went into administration.

But DCC has now reached an agreement with Devon Waste Management Ltd, who will take on the running of the site.

Councillor Roger Croad, DCC cabinet member for environment, said: “We’re pleased to have reached an agreement to re-open South Molton Recycling Centre.

“It’s a valued local resource and it was unfortunate that it had to be closed temporarily, but we have been working hard to re-open it as soon as possible.

“I’m sure people will appreciate having it back up and running.”

The centre will be open on Saturdays and Sundays, 10am-4.30pm.
