Council advises alternatives as Scotstown Household Waste Recycling Centre closes temporarily for upgrade works

Aberdeen City Council has today (20 January) advised users of the Scotstown Road Household Waste Recycling Centre to use the city’s four other centres from Monday 23 January until 5.30am until Thursday 2 February to allow resurfacing work to complete.

The work will replace the existing concrete surface at the Bridge of Don centre. The HWRC at East Tullos, which was due to have restricted access because of essential works currently being carried out by Scotland Gas Networks (SGN), remains open, however, as SGN’s work has not as yet progressed as far as the site on Greenbank Crescent.

Councillor Jean Morrison, Zero Waste Sub-committee said: “As there is still road access to the Greenbank Crescent Household Waste Recycling Centre it means that we are able to undertake improvement work at Scotstown Road centre.

“Limited access to our Scotstown Road facility will be available from 2 February and in the meantime our advice to householders is to recycle their household waste at our four other centres across the city.”

The four alternative Household Waste Recycling Centres in Aberdeen are at:

· Pitmedden Road, Dyce, AB210DP

· Greenbank Cresent, East Tullos, AB12 3BG

· Sclattie, off Bankhead Road, Bucksburn, AB21 9ET

· Grove, Hazlehead Avenue, AB15 3BJ
