Hampshire residents are being asked what they would like from their Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs), and how they use them.
Hampshire County Council is looking at different and innovative options for running the HWRC service, partly in response to continuing reductions in Government funding, but also to see how a modern, value-for-money service can best be achieved for Hampshire's residents.
Councillor Seán Woodward, Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment at Hampshire County Council, said: "Services across the Council have to find savings, and this is no exception. We have an excellent record for diverting waste from landfill in Hampshire, and we want to keep it that way.
"We've looked carefully at how residents are using HWRCs, the frequency of use and the type of waste disposed. We have some options that would either save money or generate income to offset costs, to ensure the service is sustainable in the long-term. What we need to do now, is find out from Hampshire's residents what they think of these options, and hear what's most important to people."
