The local authority has said recycling centres at Roughmute and Kinneil will stay open seven days a week until August 9.

Traffic management will also stay in place as numbers are still being limited.

Both centres have been open since June 1, and nearly 50,000 vehicles have visited the site in the first seven weeks.

Due to the coronavirus Falkirk Council is continuing to limit the number of vehicles on the site at any one time in compliance with social distance guidelines.

A spokesperson said: “Indications are that site visitor numbers are starting to come down but only slightly.

“Given that a high number of householders are still accessing the centres both Roughmute and Kinneil will continue to remain open seven days per week up to August 9.

“For this period the traffic orders and signage will remain in place. The website will be updated accordingly.”
