More slots available at Warwickshire recycling centres

MORE appointments for recycling are now available in Warwickshire.

Warwickshire recycling centres are all open and the number of appointments available to book has increased by 5,000 per week.

Warwickshire County Council (WCC) is asking visitors to continue to respect other people on site and allow each other space.

The council’s environment, climate and culture spokeswoman Coun Heather Timms said: “The Warwickshire waste team have worked with Public Health to reorganise our nine recycling centres so that we can offer a third more appointments each week from the start of the school summer holidays.

“Parking spaces have been rearranged so that we can offer more slots per 15 minutes but still allow plenty of space for visitors to move around. I want to thank householders in Warwickshire, who continue to separate out recycling at home and at the recycling centres, increasing recycling rates.

“Information about recycling will be kept up to date on the web this summer, including how to book an appointment to a recycling centre. The appointments lead to an efficient visit, with much-reduced queues which in turn has benefits for the local environment through fewer cars idling and a reduced impact on local traffic.

“Please separate your waste streams for recycling as you pack your car. Recycling all that you can at home and at the recycling centre is one easy way for householders to cut their carbon emissions and help the environment.”

There are over 21,000 slots in total released each week, with each day’s appointments are released a week in advance.
