Burntwood's Household Waste and Recycling Centre closed on September 17 and has now reopened after undergoing the revamp works.

Work has included resurfacing the site, painting fresh lines and repairs to make the popular site easier to use – and help tackle emissions there.

The investment follows the return of the county's tips back into Staffordshire County Council management in April this year with the promise of upgraded facilities and new recycling methods.

Earlier this month residents feared the closure would be extended or could even be made permanent after the original reopening date of late October was put back to November, however it has now started welcoming vehicles again.
