Dorset recycling centre to open

A waste management centre in Dorset will open to the public on 1 October, bringing to an end a 22-year wait.

The modern facility at Broomhills, off the A35, combines a household recycling centre and waste transfer station.

The area had been without a dedicated facility to manage its waste since the Bothenhampton landfill site closed in 1993.

GP Green Recycling, a division of landscaping business GP Plantscape, converts garden and food waste into a PAS 100 compost that is suitable for regeneration projects, agriculture, horticulture and landscaping use.

Paint donated to reuse centre

The ReUse Together Centre, a social enterprise scheme in Blackburn, pictured, has been given 70 litres of recycled paint from Crown Paints to use on forthcoming projects.

The centre was set up 18 months ago to provide a low-cost alternative for furniture, white goods and other household items. It relies on volunteers to turn donated items and diverted landfill into desirable products for low-income families.

Tins of waste paint handed in at Crown decorating centres are reprocessed under the company’s Kick Out The Can scheme and donated to community projects in their area.
