Recycling centre opening hours to change
LA Collette’s Household Reuse and Recycling Centre’s opening hours are to change to give people more time to use the facility at weekends.
The changes, which will come into effect from 10 June, will also see the centre open on some bank holidays.
The new hours are being introduced in response to a customer survey, which aimed to better understand when customers use the facility.
The research showed that the majority of customers used the centre primarily at the weekend and that they wanted longer Sunday opening and a later closing time one day during the working week.
Under the new system, the total number of hours the facility is open would reduce from the current 55 hours per week to 46 hours, and it would be closed all day on Wednesdays. But it would open later on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. Current opening times are Monday to Saturday 7.30am to 4.15pm and Sunday 8am to 12.45pm.
The new opening times will be: Monday 10am to 7pm; 9am to 4pm on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and 9am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.
Infrastructure Minister Kevin Lewis said: ‘We understand that to increase recycling it has to be easy and we hope that by listening to our customers and changing our opening times more people will find it easier to access our household facilities at La Collette.’
