Here comes summer for Gloucestershire recycling

Gloucestershire's household recycling centres are starting summer a week early due to high demand.

The centres, which are run by Gloucestershire County Council, will open from 9am-5pm from Sunday, March 21 after the shorter winter hours of 10am-4pm.

Visitors to the centres at Hempsted in Gloucester, Wingmoor Farm at Bishop's Cleeve, Pyke Quarry at Horsley, Fosse Cross near Cirencester and Oak Quarry, Coleford, need to pre-book their visit.

Councillor Nigel Moor, cabinet member responsible for waste and recycling, said: "I'm pleased so many people are using our household recycling centres at the moment.

"I hope the move to summer opening hours a week earlier than planned will help meet the extra demand and ensure people can find suitable booking slots when they can visit."

Social distancing is required on site and to minimise queues and waiting times the number of booking slots available is limited with visitors asked to keep to their appointment times.
