Change in opening hours at Household Recycling Centres

Shropshire Council and their contractor Veolia are reminding residents about the change in opening hours at Household Recycling Centres (HRCs) across the county.

From Thursday 1 November 2012, Shropshire Council’s HRCs will be opening from 9am until 5pm daily (with the exception of Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day when the sites are closed).  HRCs offer collection points for more than 30 different types of recyclable material across Shropshire - a much wider range of materials than can be collected at the kerbside.

If people are bringing waste to the site in a large trailer or a van they will need a permit to gain access.  Please check the council’s website for details so you can plan your trip.

Mike Owen, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member responsible for waste management, added:

“This is normal practice for Shropshire Council’s HRCs in the winter, when the sites have less usage.”
