One day reduction for Ruthin and Denbigh recycling park opening

The Council has announced that both Ruthin and Denbigh recycling parks will close one day a week each from April 2019, as part of cost cutting measures being introduced by the authority.

The proposals were amongst a £5.6 million package of efficiencies recently approved by the Council.

The Denbigh Recycling Park will close every Thursday but will remain open for the rest of the week. Householders needing to the use facilities at a Recycling Park on a Thursday can visit their nearest recycling park in Ruthin or in Rhyl.

The Ruthin Recycling Park will be closed every Friday but will stay open for the remaining six days of the week.

Councillor Brian Jones, Cabinet Lead Member for Highways, Planning and Sustainable Travel, said: “The budget position means that we have needed to look very closely at everything that we do and some difficult decisions are now needing to be made.

“We have looked at our recycling park operations and have agreed to close both Ruthin and Denbigh for one day a week. The closures will be on different days and on the days that will traditionally be the quietest for that particular location. However, both locations will be open for the remaining six days of the week (including the weekend days when all recycling parks tend to be busier).  The new way of working should not affect residents too greatly, as other facilities will be available in the county.

The opening days of the Rhyl recycling park are not affected.

Signage informing residents of the changes will be placed at both the Denbigh and Ruthin recycling parks in March to help residents plan their visits around the new opening times from April.

Details on recycling in Denbighshire can be found on the Council’s website:
