Changes to recycling and household waste sites

Consultation relating to opening times of recycling and household waste sites.

This consultation is now closed. It ran from 1 July to 23 September 2019.

The council Proposed:

  • Reducing the daily recycling and household waste sites (RHWS) opening hours to 9am to 5pm in the summer (April to September), whilst leaving winter hours the same.

We estimate that this proposal will save the council £134,000 by the end of 2020/21.
