Cuts proposed by Surrey County Council could result in no Recycling Centre in Runnymede

December 12, 2018 9:13 AM

Fly tipping in LyneAlong with potential cuts affecting a range of services across the county, Surrey County Council are considering the closure of the Recycling Centre in Lyne, Chertsey. This is a busy tip which serves Chertsey, Egham, Virginia Water & surrounding areas. Since charges for domestic DIY rubbish were introduced and then closure of the site 2 days a week there has been a marked increase in fly tipping in this area. Fly tipped rubbish is cleared up by Runnymede Borough Council at a cost to us the tax payer. Closure of the tip, the only Reccyling Centre in Runnymede, will result in more fly tipping as well as an increase of traffic as people journey to other recycling centres such as Martyrs Lane in Woking and Charlton, Shepperton, which already have long queues. We must fight for the centre to remain open to keep this important facility. Please support saving the Centre by signing and sharing the petition.
