Resident are urged to have their say on the county’s household waste and recycling centres (HWRCs).
Oxfordshire County Council has started a consultation process to find out the views of residents, businesses and other organisations on the service that is provided now and what they might like to see in the future.
The council currently provides seven HWRCs for residents to bring household waste for disposal and recycling. The service accounts for 15% of the county’s total household waste.
However, some of the sites are already nearing capacity and, as the county’s population grows, the council wants to ensure that its HWRCs remain affordable and help residents manage their waste in the most environmentally friendly way.
The consultation is aimed at finding out what people value about the service and how they use it so that the council can ensure that it prioritises that going forward. Views are sought on issues including the distance people travel to the HWRCs, what materials they take to dispose of, opening hours, permits, booking systems and vehicle restrictions.
People can have their say by visiting Let’s Talk Oxfordshire, the council’s new digital consultation and engagement platform. The consultation runs until 27th September 2021.
