The Brook Road site shut on Tuesday and will re-open as usual at 9am on Friday 19 April.
The annual ‘deep clean’ consists of thorough cleansing, landscape maintenance, relining of parking bays, painting and general repairs to steps and recycling containers.
Director of the Dorset Waste Partnership Steve Burdis said:
“The deep clean is part of a planned maintenance programme for all our HRCs built into our contract with operators W&S Recycling. As a result, there is no extra cost for the deep clean treatments.
“We have chosen a relatively quiet time of year and the least busy part of the week to carry out this work, minimising disruption for local people as much as possible. For practical and safety reasons we need to close the site to visitors during this period.”
During this time local residents can use any of the Dorset Waste Partnership’s 10 other HRCs or hang on to their waste until their local centre re-opens.
