The threat to waste recycling centres in Suffolk was known, but a decision to give the names of seven to close in May was suddenly made on the eve of today’s county council meeting.
The nearest centre to me, at Brome, north of Eye, is among those to close. The centres are run by a contractor which allows the council sidestep responsibility for redundancies by simply referring enquiries to the contractor.
But most bizarrely, the EADT report the council recognises the need to keep sites open over the Easter weekend (usually one of the busiest) and for the extra bank holiday on 29 April, so any closures would not happen until 9 May.
What about Easter 2012?
