THE Sort It! recycling centre in Yate is expected to be busier for the next four months while the nearby Mangotsfield facility is closed for an upgrade.

Work will continue until the end of May on significant improvements to the transfer station and recycling yard attached to the Mangotsfield centre, which is some six miles from Yate.

During the closure, South Gloucestershire Council has urged people who normally use Mangotsfield to take their rubbish to either Yate or its other recycling sites in Thornbury and Little Stoke.

It said the work being carried out would prepare the Mangotsfield centre for new weekly recycling collections that are due to start across the district in June.

Later in the year, householders will also have their 240-litre black wheelie bins replaced with smaller 140-litre containers.

The moves are aimed at helping the district cut waste and recycle 50 per cent of its rubbish by 2020.
