Pinchbeck pensioner calls for changes at Spalding tip

A Pinchbeck pensioner feels that problems at Spalding tip could be improved if the site was more efficiently run.

Alf Searle feels that the traffic, which has been seen around the town’s Waste and Recycling Centre in West Marsh Road, would ease if staff helped residents.

Long traffic queues - stretching back to the A16 - have been reported around the Lincolnshire County Council run site over a number of weekends recently.

Mr Searle was unhappy during a visit on Friday last week to see long queues of traffic. He said: “There is something desperately wrong.

“They have people doing nothing.

“If they worked it would improve the efficiency of the tip.”

Simon Bell, waste services at the county council, said: “We’re sorry to hear the gentleman feels like staff weren’t helpful during his latest visit. The staff at all our household waste recycling centres do help residents move items from their cars to the bins. If you are visiting the centre and need assistance, especially with a bulky or awkward load, please just ask the staff, who will be able to help.”
