Household Waste Recycling Centre Opening Hours


Good News

Earlier this month we carried out a consultation about all aspects of our Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs).   From this we received several comments about our opening hours.

Last year, we did reduce the opening hours and/or times. The Warwickshire waste management budget has been squeezed by £4M from 2011 and 2015 and more cuts will continue for several years to come. The options for our service have been to close some of our 9 sites and retain the hours as they were, or to shorten the hours across all of them, but keep them all open. Faced with the options put in front of them, Councillors democratically elected to do the latter.

The good news is that every Wednesday between April – September is late night opening until 6.30pm at all HWRCs (except Stockton and Shipston due to planning restrictions).

62% of respondents of the HWRC survey were not aware of this late night opening, so as a result we will be promoting these summer time extended opening hours. There are also longer hours of operation at the weekends.

All opening hours are detailed on the individual site pages at

The full summary of results will be available shortly….watch this space!
