A new recycling centre, costing more than £1m, is set to open in the north of the Isle of Man.

The northern civic amenity site at Balladoole Farm will be open to the public from 13:00 GMT on Friday.

The centre is designed to recycle a wide range of items including paper, glass, metal, plastic bottles, fridge freezers and clothing.

A government spokesman said it was hoped the facility would encourage a recycling culture in the Isle of Man.

The facility also includes a "reuse building" where residents can take working items for others to make use of.

Graham Cregeen MHK said "This development forms an integral part of our waste strategy and has been designed in line with best practice and provides a site up to the same standards experienced by residents in the west, east and south of the island.

"It will ensure the reuse and recycling culture is enhanced primarily through the expansion of the site and a reuse building where a wider selection of materials can now be stored for members of the public to put to good use."
