Facilities at Black Boy Public House, Warwick Road, Knowle and Wyndley Garden Centre, Warwick Road, Knowle are among seven set to shut.

Cabinet member for environmental and community services Kate Wild said: “We know from the results of our regular customer satisfaction surveys that there has been a general decline in the use of mini recycling centres over the past four years.

“This has also coincided with the improvements we have made to our kerbside recycling service.

“The sites that are closing have been chosen based on how often they are used, how much recyclable material we collect from them and the cost to taxpayers to manage the sites and remove fly-tipping.”
