As part of planned savings, Oxfordshire County Council has reduced the overall household waste recycling centre (HWRC) budget by £350,000 from 2017/18.
To meet this reduction our proposal is to reduce the number of HWRCs from seven to three, or to four and to change the opening hours of the remaining sites. Once agreed, these changes will be made over several years with plenty of notice given to local residents.
There will be a consultation on these proposals running from 10 August (12 noon) to 5 October 2015. This consultation is open to all Oxfordshire householders to comment on. Understanding public views, opinions and preferences is key to our decision making process.
The consultation documents will be available online from 10 August (12 noon) at www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/waste and we encourage people to complete the online response questionnaire. If residents need support to take part in this consultation we recommend they contact the county council on 01865 816043 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Hard copies of the consultation materials for people to review are available at all libraries.
