Household Waste Recycling Centre Consultation

The Observatory is supporting colleagues in the County Council’s Waste Management Team with a consultation on changes to the Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs).

During 2010, a complete review of Household Waste Recycling Centres in Warwickshire was initiated. Part of this review covered finding budget savings of over £900,000 by 2012 from the nine sites and the disposal of green waste and recycling that comes from them.

It is proposed that eight of Warwickshire County Council’s nine HWRCs will remain open seven days a week. The other site, Stockton, would become one of Britain’s first recycling centres run by the voluntary sector along with Wellesbourne. The proposed future delivery of the service would see the Government’s Big Society agenda implemented locally, where the community will help run the sites. This will enable seven day opening to remain at the eight busiest sites.

The consultation closes on August 14th 2011.
