There is just a week left for residents to have their say on proposals to develop a state-of-the-art waste and recycling facility in Keynsham.
Bath & North East Somerset Council is looking to consolidate its operational facilities at Pixash Lane and Ashmead Road into a redeveloped site at Pixash Lane.
The operational waste and recycling transfer station at Midland Road in Bath will also transfer to the new site, along with B&NES Council’s refuse, recycling and garden waste collection vehicles and crews.
Feedback from the consultation will be used as part of the council’s planning application when it is formally submitted next year.
Councillor David Wood, joint cabinet member for Climate Emergency and Neighbourhood Services, said: “We want to help residents recycle more to help tackle the climate emergency but we also need to future proof our waste and recycling facilities so we can meet future demand from a growing population.
“This new sustainable purpose-built public household waste and recycling centre will not only be easily accessible for residents but will also enable us to expand our recycling provision, helping to reduce general waste and operational costs.
“It’s important though that we hear what people think about our proposals and I’d encourage residents to have their say.”
