BUILDING work on a new £1 million recycling centre in Thetford has begun.
Norfolk County Council this week confirmed that plans for the new facility on Telford Way to open by Spring 2013 are on track.
Cllr Mike Brindle, councillor for Thetford West, said the site would be an upgrade.
“People who are used to dealing with congestion and not enough parking facilities when they try to recycle their waste at the Burrell Way site will, I am sure, be very happy to use the new site on Telford Way,” he said.
The facility will be a Main Plus centre and include a Reuse Shop. The shop allows residents to donate and buy good quality household items. A proportion of profits from the shop go to local community project grants.
