KIDDERMINSTER Household Recycling Centre (HRC) will re-open to the public on Thursday, September 4 at 8am.

The facility was closed on January 31 to allow for the demolition of a building which contained asbestos, but now the work is nearing completion.

During the closure residents were signposted to the Stourport HRC on Minster Road and Worcestershire County Council has expressed its thanks to customers for their continued support recycling and composting throughout this period.

Kidderminster HRC is one of a number of facilities operated by the local authority across the county.

Full details of each site, including opening times, what materials can be recycled and when you may need a permit can be found on
