The following update on the 'Eco Park' development at the Community Recycling Centre (CRC) at Charlton Lane has been received by LOSRA:
I am writing to you with some information on the Charlton Lane Community Recycling Centre in Shepperton that is used by residents in your area, which I hope you will find helpful.
During week commencing Monday 24th August we will begin work on a new reuse centre for the recycling centre. The area where this will be built is clear of containers, and hoarding's will be erected to screen the building works from residents using the recycling centre. We therefore anticipate that there will be minimal disruption to the service from these works.
Two weeks later, during week commencing Monday 7th September, works will begin to the rear of the community recycling centre to build a ramp that will link the recycling centre with the Eco Park’s new recyclable bulking facility and install new drainage. Works in this area are expected to continue into late November and the containers at the rear of the site will be unavailable during this period. The site will continue to accept the full range of materials but with a reduced number of containers, and containers for wood, metal, carpet and cardboard will be relocated inside and adjacent to the transfer station building (those inside will be accessed through the windows).
The change to the layout of the containers and the temporary reduction in the number of containers means waiting times may be affected.
To minimise disruption during the forthcoming period of works, extra staff will be on hand to advise visitors of any changes to the layout of the containers and the opening time will be extended to 6pm Monday to Saturday.
We are also taking steps to inform residents who use the site by handing out flyers, placing adverts in the Surrey Advertiser and the Staines Informer and displaying a banner at the site. The information for residents includes details of when the site is less busy (mid-week and earlier in the day) and details of the nearest alternative community recycling centre in Martyrs Lane, Woking.
