Largs Household Waste Recycling Centre is set to reopen after a £370,000 refurbishment.
The centre will open on Monday, June 11 and will provide even more opportunity for people to recycle a wider range of materials. The council-run site underwent a three-month facelift to upgrade the facilities and increase the capacity for recycling.
Councillor John Ferguson, portfolio holder for Environment and Infrastructure, said: “Residents in North Ayrshire are always keen to do their bit for the environment.
"The increased capacity at Largs Household Waste Recycling Centre will help to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill and go some way to helping us meet national green targets.”
The re-opening of the Largs centre follows improvements to the blue bin service which allows householders to recycle a wider range of glass and plastics at the kerbside.
Before the work was carried out, members of the public could only recycle basic materials such as cardboard, plastic and glass at the Haylie Brae site.
Now, environmentally-conscious local residents can recycle a wider range of household items. Items that can now be recycled at the Largs Household Waste Recycling Centre include car batteries, bicycles, TVs and white goods, gas bottles, oil and textiles.
New CCTV has been installed at the site; while new signage and a one-way system will now be in place to make it even easier for people to dispose of their waste.
Members of the public can now deposit the following at Largs:
