Everleigh Household Recycling Centre – Closed 23-27th October 2017

Everleigh Household Recycling Centre will be closed from 23 to 27 October for refurbishment as part of the handover to a new contractor. You can take your waste to the Amesbury HRC during this period.

Wiltshire Council is also consulting on its waste strategy for the next ten years. The consultation started today and runs until November.

The council wants to develop a new waste management strategy in order to shape how we collect and manage household waste and recycling in Wiltshire over the next 10 years. We are undertaking a public consultation in order to ensure that our strategy is representative of Wiltshire residents’ opinions on the future delivery of household waste management services.

The new waste management strategy will need to be financially achievable.  It currently costs the council upwards of £30 million per year to manage all of Wiltshire’s household waste and recycling with each household producing an average of 566 kg of non-recycled waste per year.  It is expensive to treat and dispose of non-recycled waste.  In addition, not all recycling has a value; the council has to pay to collect and recycle some materials.  Any income that is generated from recycling goes towards offsetting a small part of the cost of delivering the service
