Totnes Recycling Centre

I visited the Totnes Recycling Centre  and Refurnish with Totnes Mayor, Pru Boswell to see how the facilities have changed since the contract was moved to Sita. The re-use facility on site is greatly missed despite the welcome reduction of waste to landfill under the new arrangements.

It was helpful to follow up the site visit with a meeting in the constituency office with Cllr Black and Cllr Croad, Mayor Pru Boswell and many concerned residents to press home the level of support for a return of the re-use tabletop area at the site rather than down the road at Refurnish.

It was interesting to hear  how important such a facility had been in retrieving items of historical interest for the museum like the recently salvaged 'throe'.
