Tip opening hours will change from next month

Have your say

CHANGES have been made to the opening hours of the county’s tips.

Hampshire County Council has made the changes to its waste and recycling centres, after a vote as reported last month.

From April 1, the centres will be open from 9am to 6pm between April 1 and September 30.

Between October 1 and February 28 the opening hours will be from 9am to 4pm. Then between March 1 and 31, the centres will be open from 9am to 5pm.

Environment councillor Sean Woodward, said the changes came after consultations.

He said: ‘These changes reflect customer feedback which showed that they would rather see sites open later than close one day each week or see any sites closed altogether.

‘The new opening hours also keep the sites fully open during peak user times.’
