For many local residents using the local recycling centre has been a trial of patience over the last year or so due to so much of the area being cordoned off. Thankfully there is an end in sight to the problem.
Perth and Kinross Council have announced that the Auchterarder Recycling Centre is to be closed for essential resurfacing works.
These works are to take place from the beginning of October and the centre will be closed from Monday 1st October to Sunday 14th October (inclusive).
If you need to utilise alternative facilities the nearest available are at Crieff Recycling Centre, North Forr Depot, Broich Road, Crieff or Friarton Recycling Centre, Friarton Road, Perth, PH2 8DF.
The glass and paper recycling facilities will still be available at the Public Park throughout this time.
