Fishers Farm recycling centre temporarily closes next week for a fortnight’s £106,000 upgrade to the site’s layout and drainage.
From Monday 27 November until 8am on Monday 11 December the site in North Downs Road, New Addington, will be closed so the works can take place, which include a £52,000 council investment in a new drainage system and kerbs, plus a £54,000 upgrade to the site’s layout by council contractor Veolia.
During the temporary planned closure, Croydon residents will be able to use other council recycling centres at Purley Oaks and Factory Lane. Posters directing residents to the nearest alternative recycling centres will be in place at Fishers Farm during the works.
Veolia, which operates the site on behalf of Croydon Council and the South London Waste Partnership, will increase the amount of usable space and improve the site’s traffic system to shorten queue times for residents.
“We apologise in advance for any inconvenience these works may cause our residents, who in the meantime can use alternative council recycling centres in Croydon.
“These two-week improvements are designed to give the Fishers Farm site better drainage, a better layout and shorter waiting times. We did similar works last year to our Purley Oaks site, which has resulted in positive feedback from the residents who use it.”
Councillor Stuart Collins, deputy leader – Clean Green Croydon
