THURROCK Council have announced “plans are being made” to re-open Linford Household waste and recycling centre.

On Wednesday 28 April, YourThurrock and other local news outlets reported that Mr Jenrick said he had written to councils telling them to plan to reopen tips and recycling centres.

“Our bin men and women have done a fantastic job maintaining the vast majority of collections,” Mr Jenrick told the Commons.

“I’m asking councils to plan the organised re-opening of household waste collection sites. I expect this to happen over the coming weeks and will be publishing amended guidance shortly.”

In its first response since that, the council today (Wednesday, 6 May) issued a brief statement saying: “Plans are currently being made to re-open Linford Household Waste and Recycling Centre.

“Specific guidance and a letter to local authorities on opening HWRCs was issued by government yesterday. We expect to communicate our plans for Linford early next week.”

The council had stopped all collections of brown bin garden and kitchen waste bins. A four-weekly brown bin collection came into effect from Monday 20 April to ensure that every home has garden waste collected at least once a month.
