New community recycling centre at Pyle

Regular discussions are taking place between Bridgend County Borough Council, Kier and Natural Resources Wales on when a new £2.3m community recycling centre can open at Village Farm Industrial Estate in Pyle.

The new recycling centre has been completed and is ready to open as soon as a licence has been granted to the council’s waste partners, Kier, by Natural Resources Wales.

Once open, the new recycling centre’s design will offer drivers a choice of accessing parking bays and recycling skips located on both the ground level and an upper deck.

It will feature modern facilities designed to make a trip to the tip as easy and convenient as possible. These include an all-weather canopy on the higher level, flexible bollards to prevent accidental damage to vehicles, solar on-site lighting, kerb-free parking bays to enhance safety and remove potential trip hazards, and more.

The new centre will be able to be used by up to 24 vehicles at a time while up to 72 additional vehicles queue on site. To ease congestion and further support the flow of traffic around both the recycling centre and Village Farm Industrial Estate, a dedicated turning lane has already been installed from the A48 onto Heol Mostyn along with new traffic lights and a safe crossing island.
