Kibworth Tip Reopening

Kibworth recycling and household waste site set to reopen after major redevelopment

Kibworth Recycling and Household Waste Site is to reopen to the public on Thursday 23 March, after the completion of a major redevelopment programme.

With better recycling facilities, an increased number of skips, substantial improvements to drainage and rebuilt to modern standards, the household waste and recycling centre is designed to improve safety by removing the need for users to climb steps to dispose of their waste, as well as keeping pedestrians separate from HGV traffic. More »

The new-look Kibworth site now boasts step-free access to the skips, making it easier and safer for the public to recycle and deposit their unwanted household waste. This 'split-level' design can also be seen at other waste and recycling centres in the county.

The layout has been designed to allow the separation of more materials than before to match Leicestershire County Council's desire to recycle as much unwanted waste as possible, with the top priorities to reuse, recycle and recover as much of what is thrown away as possible. Whatever is left will be responsibly disposed of.

The £5.7m redevelopment of the Kibworth Recycling and Household Waste Site includes the installation of solar panels for power generation and LED lighting, which will help to achieve the council's pledge to become a net zero county by 2045.

Councillor Blake Pain, cabinet member for the environment and the green agenda, said: "We have invested a substantial amount in the rebuilding of the Kibworth Recycling and Household Waste Site to create a modern facility which is safer, better and easier to use for customers.

"The new and improved Kibworth site has been designed to be a best practice facility that will look and function as a modern, safe and sustainable waste and recycling site should. It will also allow us to increase the amount of waste we recycle and reduce the amount being sent to landfill.

"While the scheme took longer to complete than initially anticipated due to issues beyond the council's control, we've been able to develop much improved facilities for use by residents.

"Sustainability has been at the heart of our rebuild, with solar panels and LED lighting used throughout the site as part of our ongoing commitment to tackle the climate crisis and work towards becoming a net zero county by 2045."

The centre will reopen on Thursday 23 March, and will then be open five days a week, closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please check the website before travelling. » Less

From HDC - Bin Collections Update - 13 March 2023

From HDC - Bin Collections Update - 13 March 2023

Posted: Thu, 16 Mar 2023 15:00 by Joanne Adkins

Due to the inclement weather conditions experienced on Friday, 10 March 2023, the choice had to be made to suspend all scheduled waste collections from households in the interest of health and safety. Due to this, we are now having to catch-up the work that was missed. To assist us in completing this, the decision has been made to suspend all garden waste collections this week (commencing 13 March 2023) to provide us with the vehicles necessary to help catch-up this work. More »

To supplement the garden waste collection that these households will miss, the collection calendar affected will receive an extra week's collection at the end of this year, when the collections usually cease at the end of November. This is necessary to rectify the missed days' work, whilst maintaining the usual schedule. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. » Less
