Consultation on Household Waste and Recycling Centre

Public consultation on proposals for changes to the Household Waste and Recycling Centre (HWRC)

Southampton City Council has asked 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).

Southampton City Council operates a single HWRC site, alongside 24 in the Hampshire County Council area and one in Portsmouth. These are open seven days a week, except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

Proposals include changing opening hours and it is possible that a combination of the proposals, and options within them, will be considered.

Your views on these proposals for the HWRCs are very important as the council needs this feedback to inform decision-making to contribute towards the delivery of savings.

The council will consider the feedback from this consultation later in the summer of 2016.

The consultation process was from Tuesday 12 April to Wednesday 25 May 2016
