Sort It Centre

Dear Parish/Town Council

Following the closure of the Little Stoke SORT IT centre this week we have
been working closely with SUEZ to help stop the spread of infection with
particular focus on transmission between operational sites that also deliver
kerbside collection services.

To further protect working bubbles and prevent staff from moving between
SORT IT centres we have taken the decision this morning to close Thornbury
SORT IT centre on the weekends to limit the need for SUEZ to utilise
employees from other parts of their business to keep it open.

Thornbury will still be open between Monday and Friday and Yate and
Mangotsfield SORT IT centres will remain open seven days a week. This
decision will be in place until the 30th November when we will review
staffing levels and working arrangements at that time with SUEZ.

We will be placing an electronic notice board at Thornbury today so that
residents will be advised that it is closed on the weekend and we will
update the council website and social media messages accordingly.
