Household Waste Recycling Centres- appointment system from Monday 15th June 2020

Queues of vehicles to enter Hampshire County Council's Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) have not reduced since the Centres reopened on 11th May. This continues to cause serious traffic disruption - not least for the lorries coming to collect/replace the waste containers.

Following an extensive review there will be a change, from Monday 15th June, to an appointment system. Residents will be able to book a 30 minute slot, up to 48 hours ahead. Initially available online, residents will need to provide their name and car registration. A phone reservation service will be in place shortly. Only one visit per week will be permitted.

The software system is already successfully in use at other locations and has proved robust; since it also allows more vehicles to be scheduled, the HWRCs will open an hour earlier. Thus, Fishery Lane and Havant HWRCs will be open from 0900 to 1800hrs seven days a week. For more details listen to news reports and follow www.hants.gov.uk
