Townmead Road Household Re-use and Recycling Centre is set for an upgrade and will be closed for five days at the end of this month.

The planned improvements include the resurfacing of the site in Kew which will be closed from Monday, 27 March to Friday, 31 March 2017. The site will reopen on Saturday, 1 April 2017. During this period of closure, alternative Household Waste and Recycling Centres will be open in Ealing, Hounslow (Monday-Friday), Greenford and Hillingdon. The centre in Hounslow will only be available for trade.

Richmond Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Pamela Fleming, said:

“Thank you to everyone who uses the recycling facilities at Townmead Road. Many of you will remember the major improvements carried out in 2014 when it was closed for 5 weeks. This time we are looking at 5 days and if we could carry out these improvements without closing the site we would. However, given the nature of the work - mainly resurfacing - it’s just not possible to complete the work safely whilst keeping it open to the public. We are endeavouring to keep the closure to a minimum and the intention is to reopen it on 1st April. “
