Statement following decision by Hampshire County Council on future of Hampshire Waste Recycling Centres (HWRC)

Council Leader Cllr Keith House, “ The Council welcomes the fact that Hampshire County Council have given a temporary reprieve to closing the HWRC’s, including  the four sites in our borough, but urge them to think again about their long term closure plans.” He added “We regret that they now won’t open each day until 11am, a reduction of two hours a day, and will also be closed all day on a Thursday. We are extremely concerned that this, together with the introduction of a charge for household ‘DIY type’ waste, could lead to an increase in fly tipping.”
