The closure changes for Hampshire Waste Recycling Centres (HWRC) has been postponed until October 2017. The HWRC will continue to open seven days a week, for opening times see below or visit www.hants.gov.uk/wasteandrecycling/recyclingcentres/hwrcfinder/Basingstoke
New charges at household waste recycling centres
Hampshire County Council's Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) introduced new charges for soil, rubble, plasterboard and cement bonded asbestos. Please see their waste and recycling webpages for further information or take a look at the FAQs below.
Opening hours and locations
Often referred to as the 'tip' or the 'dump', the HWRC recycles more than 60% of the materials taken there. Each site is run by a private contractor, on behalf of Hampshire County Council. Where possible, material will be re-used or recycled. This benefits the taxpayer by minimising the cost of disposal for the remaining unrecyclable rubbish. The HWRC in Basingstoke is on Wade Road. For details on finding the tip and opening times, please take a look at Household Waste Recycling Centre webpage.
Site staff are encouraged to recycle or reuse as much waste as possible. They are permitted to sell on any suitable objects, and are incentivised to do so to generate additional income.
The HWRCs tend to be busier at weekends, particularly during the summer. To avoid long queues, consider visiting during the week or making use of the longer opening hours in summer.
The HWRCs are open every day of the year, except 25 and 26 December and 1 January. Opening times are:
1 March to 31 March - 9am to 5pm
1 April to 30 September - 9am to 6pm
1 October to 28 February - 9am to 4pm
