Hordes of residents from Cranleigh & the eastern villages of Waverley are being turned away from recycling centres across the Surrey/Sussex border – now Horsham District Council has guards on the gates!
Frustrated householders now have to travel either to Guildford or Witley in their gas-guzzling cars to dispose of any household items they have accumulated over the three-month coronavirus pandemic when centres across the county were closed.
Some have found their way onto road verges, farmers’ fields and onto the Surrey Hills. Others rot in back gardens or are dumped outside Charity shops, many of which have not yet opened.
Waverley Web cannot help wondering why it has taken until recently (July 4) for the sites at Cranleigh and Caterham to open their doors. Even now, they are only open for green waste.
We understand SCC employees have been employed by councils throughout COVID-19! Haven’t we all been still paying our council tax? Or have we missed something?
