THE one-visit-per-week restriction to local tips is being lifted by Hampshire County Council.

From Monday 4th October the limit will cease, although the requirement to pre-book online will remain, confirmed Cllr Rob Humby, deputy leader and cabinet member for economy, transport and environment.

"We have listened to residents and believe now we are further into the pandemic recovery phase, and entering a time of year when, historically, demand for site visits starts to reduce, the time is now right to increase opportunities to access household waste recycling centres," Cllr Humby said.

"While the requirement to book visits online will remain in place for, at least, the time being, residents will be able to book visits to suit their needs.

"I would ask residents to make the most of each visit and separate out items for reuse and recycling to help us reduce the amount of waste that has to be disposed of.

"By making this move now, as we are about to enter winter operating hours, we can ensure that the demand during reduced opening times, can be met."

HCC has also asked motorists who book a spot but then do not need it to ensure they cancel it.
