Ripon recycling centre is re-opening today.    

  • Ripon recycling centre is re-opening today (Tuesday, 19 May).  
  • Five centres are re-opening across North Yorkshire.  
  • The council says Harrogate Stonefall site will remain closed for the time being.  

It's one of five tips re-opening in North Yorkshire.  

North Yorkshire County Council says the Harrogate Stonefall site will remain closed for the time being, because of difficulties managing traffic.  

The sites that are re-opening are:

  • Malton, Pasture Lane, Malton, YO17 6BT
  • Northallerton, Yafforth Road, Northallerton, DL7 0LG
  • Ripon, Dallamires Crescent, Dallamires Lane, Ripon, HG4 1TT
  • Tadcaster, Station Road Industrial Estate, Tadcaster, LS24 9SG
  • Wombleton, Cockerhill Lane, Wombleton, YO62 7RJ

Cllr Andrew Lee, Executive Member for Waste Management, said: 

"For safety reasons, we are unable to reopen Harrogate Stonefall at this time because of difficulties managing highway safety. This is under review with an aim to open as soon as it is safe for both public and staff. 

“It is great to see all but one of the sites reopening, and I would like to thank the North Yorkshire residents for their understanding, and for playing their part by continuing to recycle and dispose of their waste responsibly and only visiting the sites when they can’t store their waste at home.

"All the sites that have reopened so far have been managed well by our contractor Yorwaste with new controls to keep the public and staff safe. We would like to remind residents that we are currently unable to accept trailers or commercial customers at any of the sites.”
