More chances to recycle with extended opening hours

Bedford’s Household Waste Recycling Centre opening hours are changing from 1st April 2012.


The HWRC on Barkers Lane will remain open 7 days a week and will continue to provide recycling facilities for a huge range of materials. The centre will now be open until 7pm on Saturdays to enable local residents to use the centre for longer at the weekend.


Councillor Charles Royden, Portfolio Holder for Environment & Transport, said: “The Household Waste Recycling Centre provides an excellent service for local residents and recycles a huge range of materials in a safe and convenient set up.

 

“We are extending the opening hours on Saturday to enable local residents to recycle for longer and at a time which suits them. This, in turn, will help to further increase local recycling rates.

 

“The extended opening hours come into effect on 1st April 2012 and continue until 30th September.”

 

The Barkers Lane site is open seven days a week all year round, excluding Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.


Householders are requested to arrive 10 minutes before closing time to allow time to unload (as no waste will be accepted after that time).  The site will fully close 10 minutes later. If on site before “last entry time” residents will have time to recycle and dispose of their waste.
