On 19 May 2011, members of the Society’s Committe were shown around the Swanagee Household Recycling Centre (HRC) then under construction.

Following our visit representations were made to the County Council on the seeming extravagance in scale and cost (£3 million), the amount of concrete used, the lack of what seemed to be effective screening and over provision of lighting, particularly on the road leading to it.

The HRC opened in January 2012.
