Close to 12,000 Hampshire residents responded to Hampshire County Council’s recent public consultation on how savings could be made in the running of household waste recycling centres (HWRCs).
Councillor Rob Humby, Executive Member for Environment and Transport at Hampshire County Council, said: “I’d like to thank everyone who took the time to respond to the consultation. All the responses will now be carefully analysed, alongside the other data and evidence we have for each individual site.
“We know that the HWRCs are well thought of and well used by people in Hampshire, and I think the number of responses we received reinforces this point. The feedback we have is extremely useful, and will help us to shape the changes that will need to be made to establish a financially sustainable model for the whole of Hampshire, for the future.”
The public consultation on HWRCs ran from Wednesday 16 March to Wednesday 25 May 2016.

The analysis report will be available on www.hants.gov.uk/hwrc2016 after the Decision Day meeting.
