From Wednesday 1 June 2016, the opening hours at Suffolk's Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) will be changing to offer site users extended hours on Sundays, Bank Holidays, and on a Thursday evening during the summer months, reflecting the times when the sites are most used and needed by residents.
The busiest times of the week for these sites are the weekend and bank holidays. The quietest day of the week is consistently a Wednesday. As a result of this, all sites will be closed on a Wednesday.
The new opening times for Suffolk's Household Waste Recycling Centres are as follows:
April - September
October - March
*From 1 June 2016
All sites are closed 25, 26 December and 1 January
Councillor Matthew Hicks, Cabinet Member for Environment and Public Protection at Suffolk County Council, said: “Feedback received from Recycling Centre users across Suffolk told us that people wanted to see the sites open for longer during the busiest periods. So from 1 June, all Household Waste Recycling Centres will be open for longer on Sundays, Bank Holidays and later on Thursday evenings during the summer months.”
All relevant site signage is being updated ready for the new operating timetable which begins on 1 June. A new leaflet will be available at every site for people to take away, including a handy business card with the new opening times.
