Consultation on proposals for changes to the Household Waste Recycling Centre Service
As a result of Government cuts in funding, with more to come, Hampshire County Council is asking members of the public for their views on how they think savings can best be made in the cost of running Hampshire’s Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs). Hampshire County Council operates a network of 24 HWRC sites, alongside one each in Southampton and Portsmouth which are open seven days a week, except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. These proposals include changing opening hours and/or the possible closure of some HWRC sites. It is possible that a combination of the proposals, and options within them, will be considered. Further background details, together with a questionnaire asking for views on the various options, can be found on the website www.hants.gov.uk/hwrc2016. Alternatively a paper copy can be obtained via the Council on 0300 5551389.
The consultation will close at midday on Wednesday 25 May 2016. You are encouraged to give your views if at all possible as the future of our “Tip” in Alresford will be under consideration.
