Lowestoft's waste recycling centre will close next month and move to a temporary home. The current Suffolk County Council-run centre in Wilde Street will shut on Sunday July 23, and move to Hadenham Road, on the south Lowestoft industrial estate, where it will open the following day and become the county's first indoor centre.

Lowestoft's waste recycling centre will close next month and move to a temporary home.

The current Suffolk County Council-run centre in Wilde Street will shut on Sunday July 23, and move to Hadenham Road, on the south Lowestoft industrial estate, where it will open the following day and become the county's first indoor centre.

Eddy Alcock, the council portfolio holder for environment, waste management and economic development said; “Suffolk is one of the top counties in the country for recycling and composting rates and Lowestoft is one of our many sites that helps us to achieve that goal.

“I would like to encourage residents of Lowestoft to take the opportunity to trial the first indoor recycling facility in the county.”

“We need to reduce the amount of waste we produce. If we do nothing to further improve our performance the average household's council tax could eventually rise by as much as £63 per year.”

The relocation has been brought about by the development of the £5m OrbisEnergy building, while the council continues its search for a suitable permanent site in the town.
