Apparently, the recycling centre will now be posisioned in the car park on City Road next to the Aida/Bliss building and not near the garages behind Chester Green Road. It could be up in the next couple of weeks.
The Evening Telegraph has reported here confirming that the recycling centre is to be relocated behind Chester Green Road. However, it would seem that residents have mixed feelings on the matter. For example, The Telegraph report Anthony Maher (64) as saying “Some people think it will be okay because they haven’t got room for the bins and it isn’t near their houses. But a lot of people don’t want it because they’re afraid it will become a dumping ground. They can look very messy and we don’t want that. The majority of people are against this new site and would rather have the bins as soon as possible.” If you have an opinion, contact Derby Streetcare at email@example.com addressing it to Jim Naismith.
