Waste and Recycling in Hampshire

Opening times have changed at recycling centres

From 1 April 2015 opening times at Hampshire’s household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) have changed to reflect peak usage.

The new opening hours are:

  • 1 April to 30 September: 9am to 6pm*
  • 1 October to 28 February: 9am to 4pm
  • 1 March to 31 March: 9am to 5pm*

*Efford HWRC will continue to close at 4.30pm during Spring and Summer in line with the site’s planning conditions.

In selecting the revised opening hours, a balance has been sought between delivering cost savings to the County Council at a time of severe financial constraints, and maintaining a valuable service to householders.

Food and garden waste: your views wanted

Hampshire County Council wants to hear from you about what you do with food and garden waste in your home.The amount of household waste thrown away in Hampshire is increasing. Your answers will help our approach in reducing this.

The survey should take around 10 minutes to complete. As a thank you for taking part, you’ll be entered into a prize draw to win £100 of leisure vouchers to spend on a special day out, a short break or a nice meal. The survey will be open until the end of April 2015.
