Election candidate and MP call for council to abandon threat over recycling centre closures

A Conservative election candidate is calling on a council not to close two recycling centres as part of cost-cutting measures.

MP Candidate Stuart Anderson with Shropshire Councillor David Evans, Chair of Craven Arms Town Council David Mills, and Ludlow MP Philip Dunne.

Stuart Anderson, the current MP for Wolverhampton South West will be standing to replace long-standing Shropshire MP Philip Dunne at the next general election.

Mr Anderson will be contesting the newly-created 'South Shropshire' constituency, which replaces the 'Ludlow' constituency.

The Conservative has now spoken out over worries about the future of the Craven Arms and Bridgnorth Household Recycling Centre.

The move comes as Mr Anderson's own party colleagues who run Shropshire Council have proposed closing two of the county recycling centres to save money.
