|Following consultation with Ryhall residents, the glass recycling banks will not be moved from Francis Court to the Millstone Public House, Parkfield Road.|
In response to complaints, the Community and Environment Scrutiny Panel undertook a review of the facility and a wide amount of consultation was done with neighbouring residents.
To address the concerns of residents at Francis Court, Rutland County Council’s cabinet agreed to introduce access times for the site. Residents will be able to use the recycling facilities at Francis Court only during the hours of 8.30am to 7pm every day. There will be no access to the site on Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Years Day.
Out of the 300 consultation letters delivered in Ryhall, 112 were returned (a response rate of 37%), with 86% of the respondents currently recycling their waste at Francis Court.
Only 36% of the respondents said they would like the site to be moved from Francis Court and 57% felt it should stay in its current location.
George Chase, waste and amenities manager, said: “We will shortly be erecting signs and implementing the access restrictions to ensure the site causes the least disturbance to Francis Court residents as possible.”
Rutland has 16 recycling points across the county. All recycling points accept glass for recycling and most accept paper, cans, cardboard, textiles and plastic bottles.
