Household Waste Recycling Centre access for all Hampshire residents


Discussions between local authorities Hampshire County Council and West Berkshire Council are ongoing to make sure Hampshire residents have convenient access to Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs).

It’s clear a long-term, sustainable solution for residents to continue to use the recycling site most local to them without an unreasonable additional burden being placed on Hampshire council tax payers needs to be found. I am in contact with County Councillor Tom Thacker (Whitchurch and Clere Division) and I understand “potential transitional arrangements for Hampshire residents are being examined ahead of the West Berkshire permit scheme coming into operation at the end of September.”

I will continue to work closely with Councillor Tom Thacker on this issue and hope to see the matter resolved swiftly and fairly.
