Councils weigh up HWRC booking systems

As Covid-19 restrictions continue to reduce, many councils are weighing up the benefits of booking systems at their household waste recycling centres (HWRCs).

Booking systems were introduced at various HWRCs across the UK following the reopening of facilities during the first lockdown. Booking slots were limited to enable easier social distancing, among other reasons.

At the time, critics expressed fears booking systems could lead to increased fly-tipping.

However, the systems have proved popular with some councils – Redcar and Cleveland borough council has made the booking system at its Dunsdale Recycling Centre permanent, whereas West Sussex county council and Caerphilly county borough council are looking at introducing systems of their own.

Don’t want to wait to book a timeslot at your local household waste recycling centre? Why not dispose of your waste by hiring a Mick George Skip or a Waste Bag and avoid any inconvenience!
