The first of Cornwall's modernised recycling centres has opened as part of a multi-million pound scheme.
The improved centre at Bude is expected to increase recycling by at least 13%.
Sita UK, which is responsible for the county's waste, said it was spending £15m on updating Cornwall's recycling centres so more people use them.
Tiscott Wood in Bude, which has been closed for about six months, is the first to be finished. It is hoped to recycle about 60% of the area's waste.
Sita UK said the site has been made safer, with more easily accessible containers, more space, and better parking.
Improved provisions have also been made to people with disabilities.
