A RECYCLING facility is being moved following the closure of a community eco-centre.

Middlesbrough’s Nature’s World attraction, which went into administration earlier this week, hosted a popular recycling ‘bring site’.

The facility will be relocated to Newham Grange Country Farm in Coulby Newham from Monday January 14.

Signage will be put in place to inform the public about the closure and the site will be monitored for a month to ensure any material left for recycling is removed.

Councillor Nicky Walker, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive Member for Streetscene Services, said: “We appreciate the support we have had from Nature’s World in promoting the facility.

“We know how important recycling is to people and I would urge them to continue to do so, either at Newham Grange, one of the other sites in the town or at the Household Waste Recycling Centre at Haverton Hill.”

Residents can deposit garden waste, including real Christmas trees in the facility’s containers for composting.
