A HOUSEHOLD waste and recycling centre will be closed for three days for essential work to take place.

Kirkless HWRC, in Makerfield Way, Higher Ince, will close from Monday 2nd March to Wednesday 4th March.

An anti-friction coating is being applied to the floor to aid vehicle safety on site.

The site is due to re-open on Thursday 5th March at 8am.

Slag Lane HWRC in Leigh and Chanters Industrial Estate HWRC in Atherton will be available to use during the closure.

Terry Dunn, Wigan Council’s Director of Environment, said: “The closure of the site for three days is necessary to allow this essential work to take place.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause however our two other centres will be open for the public to use during this time.”

This is the first of several improvements to Wigan Council’s waste and recycling sites this year.

Later in the year improvements will be made to both the Chanters and Slag Lane sites.

Both will see large canopies erected over the main areas of the sites to keep residents dry when using them.
