Glass collection at the Woodbridge Community Hall car park. 

East Suffolk Council have asked us to share this message from Councillor James Mallinder. 

Dear all 

You may be aware in early February there was a fire at the Transfer Station on Ransomes Industrial Estate, Ipswich.  This unfortunate event resulted in the Transfer Station being closed entirely until the end of March.  Whilst most of the site is back up and running, the waste bays for glass tipping remain unavailable.  SCC who manage the site have  recently  informed us that the site should be fully reinstated in early September.

Due to this closure, Norse have been unable to tip at this facility and have had to make the journey to the alternative tipping point in Lowestoft.  This has obviously had an impact on the collection on glass bins, which we have tried to minimise, but which I know has been frustrating 

I am are aware that there may be further problems during the holiday season .

The message here is we are working on resolving the issue ASAP but if the bank is full please don't leave your bottles but return another day 

If you are aware of any mountains of glass do let officers or myself know ASAP and I will make sure the issue is fast tracked 

Thanks everyone 

 James
