All county-run recycling centres are now closed one day a week on the following days:
- Tuesdays: Fosse Cross (Cirencester) and Oak Quarry (Coleford)
- Wednesdays: Pyke Quarry (Horsley near Stroud) and Wingmoor Farm (Bishops Cleeve)
- Thursdays: Hempsted (Gloucester).
The centres have also had their opening hours reduced by more than three hours a day. Previously they were open from 9am to 6:15pm, however this has now changed to 10am-4pm – a reduction of more than 35 per cent each day!
All this has been decided with no consultation with the public or with the six district councils.
Cllr Paul Hodgkinson and Cllr Jenny Forde think reducing access to recycling facilities is wrong and will only serve to frustrate those trying to do the right thing by recycling their waste, who turn up to find their local centre closed.
WE WANT TO MAKE THE CONSERVATIVES REVERSE THESE RECYCLING CUTS!
