The Lynnbottom tip has reopened to the public following groundworks to improve the experience.
Lynnbottom Tip is one of the two centres that Isle of Wight residents can take their household rubbish to.
Near Robin Hill, the site can take household rubbish, as well as items for recycling, such as garden waste.
The operation of the site was taken over by new contractor Amey in 2017. They’ll be dealing with waste on the Island until 2040.
The site is sometimes misspelt as Lynbottom, or more formally called a the Lynnbottom household waste recycling.centre
