Refuse and recycling arrangements in Alston during Front Street road closures

Cumbria County Council’s Highways Department has various road closures due to take place along Front Street in Alston between 19 March and 7 May 2018.

These road closures may impact on household recycling and refuse collections of properties situated on Front Street, King’s Arms Lane, Church Road and The Butts during this period.

If access is not available to your property on scheduled collections days household waste (Blue Bags) can be presented for collection at one of the temporary collection points detailed below.

  • Grass area adjacent to Alston Town Hall
  • Area outside of Alston Primary School

Householders affected are asked to ensure refuse and recycling presented at collection points do not obstruct roads or driveways.

Recycling can also be taken to the local bring site located at Tyne Willows Playing field.

Replacement blue bags can be collected from the Local Links office located at Alston Town Hall.
