Redevelopment works

We are opening a new waste treatment facility at Millerhill next year. Ahead of the opening we are building transfer stations at Sighthill and Seafield recycling centres. We are also carrying out other works to make the sites easier to use. We are sorry for any inconvenience the works may cause you. Seafield depot should be opening in February 2019 and Sighthill depot is due to open by July 2019.

Seafield recycling centre access changes

The entrance to the site has changed. The public still enter the site via Fillyside Road however to enter the recycling centre you enter by the old exit gate which is sign posted on the site.

The contractors are creating a one way system so the exit will take the traffic to Seafield Road where there is a give way sign and no right turn. Traffic can only exit heading towards B&M. This is a temporary measure until the new road is in service.
