The one visit per week limit for residents taking waste to one of Hampshire’s twenty-four household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) has now been lifted.
While there is no limit on the number of bookings per week, any bookings made which later are not needed, should be cancelled so that they can be available to others.
Councillor Rob Humby, who is the County Council’s Deputy Leader and Executive Lead Member for Economy, Transport and Environment, said:
“We have listened to residents and believe that now we are further into the pandemic recovery phase, and entering a time of year when, historically, demand for site visits starts to reduce, the time is now right to increase opportunities to access household waste recycling centres.
“I am pleased to confirm that from 4 October, residents will no longer be limited to one visit per week. While the requirement to book visits online will remain in place for, at least, the time being, residents will be able to book visits to suit their needs. I would ask residents to make the most of each visit and separate out items for reuse and recycling to help us reduce the amount of waste that has to be disposed of.
“By making this move now, as we are about to enter winter operating hours, we can ensure that the demand during reduced opening times, can be met.”
