Midweek closure days and seasonal opening hours

From 28th October Gloucestershire County Council’s Household Recycling Centres (HRCs) will be closed one day mid-week, either on a Tuesday, a Wednesday or a Thursday and changing to seasonal opening hours.

 

Seasonal opening times (6 days per week):

28th October 2018 - 30th March 2019

Winter - 10am-4pm

31st March 2019 - 26th October 2019

Summer - 9am-5pm

 

Site specific day closures:

On Tuesdays, Fosse Cross (Cirencester) and Oak Quarry (Coleford) will be closed.

On Wednesdays, Pyke Quarry (Horsley near Stroud) and Wingmoor Farm (Bishops Cleeve) will be closed.

On Thursdays, Hempsted (Gloucester) will be closed.

 

Please note all HRC's will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.

 

Why we are changing our opening hours:

As the evenings get colder and darker, the HRCs across the county receive almost 30 per cent less waste and recycling. In order to reflect this and save taxpayers money, HRCs change to seasonal opening hours and open six days a week.

 

The council collected data from recycling centres and this told us that midweek is the quieter period at our sites. Residents will have a reasonable alternative recycling centre with this closure pattern, by closing sites at opposite sides of the county. The new opening arrangements and how the sites are used will be monitored. The closure rota also means HRCs in the county will still be open on Bank Holiday Mondays and Good Friday, which are especially busy days at the sites.
