Warwickshire County Council has launched a consultation on new opening times and policies for its network of household waste recycling centres (HWRCs).
Under proposals, eight of the council’s nine HWRCs would open seven days a week, while the Stockton site would be operated by the voluntary sector, as revealed by MRW in June.
The voluntary operated site would open for six hours a day, and there would be tighter restrictions on unsorted wastes in order to increase recycling rates.
Council waste management spokeswoman Helen Walton said: “As we were faced with making budget cuts, we have had to consider many options to deliver the necessary savings, including closing sites for some days or perhaps even fully.
“We have instead looked at an innovative way to deliver our service by combining the private sector, the voluntary sector and Warwickshire council direct services.”
