Reema Road centre back in action for rubbish recycling

A BELLSHILL recycling centre has reopened its doors after refurbishment work by North Lanarkshire Council.

Reema Road Household Waste Recycling Centre now has more skips for different materials, making it easier for residents to dispose of their household waste.

Like all the council’s waste and recycling centres, Reema Road is open every day (apart from Christmas Day and New Year’s Day) from 8am to 8pm.

A wide variety of household waste can be recycled at the centre including glass, cans, paper and cardboard, wood, garden waste, scrap metal, rubble, engine oil, car batteries, flattened plastic bottles, electrical equipment, fridges and fridge freezers, fluorescent tubes and low energy light bulbs, textiles and shoes.

Councillor Helen McKenna, convener of environmental services, said: “The council is committed to increase the amount of waste we can recycle, helping reduce our carbon emissions and protect the environment.

“We know that residents too are very keen to recycle their waste so we are investing in our facilities to make it as easy as possible.

“Reema Road has been refurbished at a cost of £800,000, providing more space and improved access for residents depositing their household waste. With so many different materials that can be recycled at the centre, people only have to make one journey to dispose of all their waste in the proper way.”

The facility will not accept any commercial waste.
