Tip to process more rubbish
An improved city tip will open in Derby on Monday.

Raynesway Recycling and Household Waste Centre, which is owned by the city council, has been undergoing a 250,000 revamp over the past three months.

During that time, a temporary facility has been run from an old bunker site nearby.

The improved tip will be capable of processing up to 40,000 tonnes a year - roughly double what the old centre could handle.

The work included replacing walkways leading up to the skips with a sloping ramp which people can drive up.

Waste manager Alan Whileman said: "We are very pleased that the site is now available to the public after these three months of renovation.

"The new site is going to be a lot more customer friendly and deal with a lot more through-put of waste and hopefully provide a lot better service for the people of Derby."
