Smugglers Way dump closed today - anyone know why? lots of staff hanging about ..

went to the dump at Smugglers Way with a car full of borage and bindweed & it was shut.  there were lots of staff milling around, does anyone know whether it is likely to reopen later or not?  my car is going to be full of snails if its tomorrow.

Looks like it is open now, because I just checked out the livecam and saw cars going in. Thank goodness for that, because I've got bags of borage too!
Lucy S
i'll be borage delivering later then.  followed by paving slabs (nasty concrete ones, only two, no one would want) and broken bricks.  nothing like heaving heavy weights in a hot sun is there?
