Opening of new Oakenholt tip delayed due to ‘issues with the construction works’
Flintshire County Council has said the planned opening of the new Rockcliffe Household Waste Recycling Centre in Oakenholt has been delayed due to last minute issues with the construction works.
The new recycling centre, or ‘tip’ as they are more commonly known, was due to open on Monday October 1.
An update from the councils Twitter account this evening states:
“Due to some last minute issues with the construction works on the site, the opening of the Rockcliffe Oakenholt Household Waste Recycling Centre has been delayed. The revised opening date is now the 8th October.”
Cabinet member for Streetscene Carolyn Thomas later said on social media:
“The site itself is on target, everyone has been working extremely hard. It’s because the permanent junction traffic signals are not online yet and the decision was not made lightly.”
The council plan to close Connah’s Quay Recycling Centre on Dock Road and the Castle Industrial Estate site in Flint on Sunday, September 30 has now been put back to Sunday October 7.
Connah’s Quay and Flint tips are both three day a week operations, the new Rockcliffe Household Waste Recycling Centre will be a seven day a week operation.
Unlike the two it will replace the site is a split level design, meaning users won’t need to walk up steps and platforms to dump waste.
