Closure of Helmdon's Mini Recycling Site
Following the introduction of the new recycling scheme in Helmdon, please be advised that SNC will be removing Helmdon mini recycling site in the next few weeks. This is not a busy site, according to the tonnages we have been collecting, and now that residents have more space for recycling with their blue bins, it seems the right time to remove the site. We also have new vehicles coming soon which will struggle to access the site.
Your nearest alternative mini neighbourhood sites are located at Brackley Tesco or Farthinghoe Recycling & Reuse Centre. These sites will remain open.
We have considered this carefully, and Helmdon is not on its own in this situation. Other underused or problem sites will be closing as the new scheme rolls out. We are expecting tonnages to fall at these sites as the capacity of the blue bins is the equivalent of 4-5 recycling boxes.
