The household waste recycling centre on Pasture Lane in Malton has reopened following the successful opening of 14 North Yorkshire sites earlier this month.

All 20 of the County Council’s recycling centres closed in March in response to Government restrictions to protect the public.

Social distancing must be observed, with people remaining at least two metres apart at all times.

Hand sanitising facilities at sites are limited, so people are advised to wear gloves on site and wash their hands before and after the visit.

Cllr Andrew Lee, executive member for waste management, said: “It is great to see all but one of the sites reopening, and I would like to thank the residents for their understanding, and for playing their part by continuing to recycle and dispose of their waste responsibly and only visiting the sites when they can’t store their waste at home.”
