Open all hours

Posted on:

Our Chemical Disposal Point for campers’ toilets has now had its second anniversary and customer numbers are increasing. The biggest complaint we have had about the service is that it’s not open on a Monday, when the Recycling Depot is closed.

With assistance from CnES, the local authority, we have modified the fence/gates and installed a coin meter and latch to make the CDP accessible 24×7, just like our other one at Huisinis Gateway.

Like most of Harris, we operate with a private sewerage system – there is no mains sewerage. For this reason we ask customers not to use “blue” chemicals in their waste. We rely on the majority of customers using “green”, septic-tank friendly chemicals – or none at all.

The meter needs 3 x £1 coins to open the latch. This charge contributes to the annual septic tank emptying fee.

The Urgha “thunderbox”

Posted on:

This week we commissioned the first chemical disposal point for campervans in North Harris. The dump point or “elsan” point as they are also known, is installed at the North Harris Recycling site at Urgha (HS3 3BW).

The point, which is now affectionately called “the thunderbox”, is accessible during depot opening hours -currently TUES-SAT 10:00-17:30. Replacement chemicals will also be stocked.

We will also be opening a further disposal point at the new Huisinis Gateway site (HS3 3AY). This will hopefully be open in the next 10 days – once Building Control has signed off the development.
