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.
