An annual seasonal change in opening hours for Leicestershire’s recycling and household waste sites will come into effect next week.

From Tuesday 1 October to 31st March 2020, winter opening times will apply, with all county council sites open from 9am to 4pm, five days a week.

The five-day pattern of opening is arranged so that sites are open at weekends and a proportion of sites remain open each day for use by the public in the week

Sites at Kibworth, Lount, Lutterworth, Melton, Mountsorrel and Whetstone are closed on Tuesday and Wednesday with the facilities at Barwell, Bottesford, Coalville, Loughborough, Market Harborough, Oadby and Somerby closed on Thursday and Friday.

The recycling and household waste site in Hathern Road, Shepshed is closed temporarily while essential maintenance work is carried out. It is due to re-open in late November.
