Recycling centre changes agreed

Hampshire County Council has agreed changes to how its 24 Household Waste Recycling Centres will operate when the relaxation of restrictions by the government become effective – now expected to be on 19th July.

The booking system will be extended, and it is hoped the easing of restrictions and reduced need for additional space between parked vehicles will mean that the number of booking slots available for each site can be increased.

The charge of £5, for non-Hampshire residents visiting HWRCs in the county, which was suspended during the pandemic response, will be reinstated.

A six-month trial allowing pedestrian access will be undertaken at Hedge End, New Alresford and Waterlooville.

Glass banks will be removed from HWRCs by 1st July 2021, in the light of steadily decreasing deposits of glass at HWRCs, as well as the cost of the glass banks at HWRCs now outweighing the value of the material from re-sale, and a rise in glass collection from households.
