Recycling Centre Maintenance

Please be advised that there will be some changes to Blairgowrie Recycling Centre during works due to be undertaken next month.

From Monday 3 October, maintenance will take place at the Blairgowrie Waste Transfer Station for 6 to 8 weeks. The Recycling Centre will operate as usual, however when users enter the site, they will have to take a slightly different route round. There will be a Site Attendant on hand to help, with heras fencing in place to help guide users round safely.Commercial traders will still have access to dispose of wood, green and inert waste.

A press release has been produced, and will be issued to local news outlets. A notice has been placed on the Waste and Recycling News pages of the Council’s website, and the Customer Service Centre has been updated.

Please drive slowly and carefully with these works are going on, Thanks!

Public Workshop on Blairgowrie & Rattray Access to Services

“Older / Isolated people: Can you easily access everything you need in the Town Centre?”

BRCC alongside Perth and Kinross Council are running a study that will consider how the Town Centre could work better for everyone.

To support this group, a specific workshop is being held at the Town Hall on Tuesday 1st March 2016 from 10:30am to 12:00 noon to focus on the Town Centre area of the settlement. Continue reading
