Northamptonshire County Council Public Consultations
The following information contains the details of the Consultation which has been published.
Title: Northamptonshire Household Waste Recycling Centre Public Consultation
Subject: Waste Recycling
Start Date: 06 Oct 2014
End Date: 31 Oct 2014
Result Date: 09 Dec 2014
Northamptonshire County Council continues to be faced with significant reductions to the funding it receives from central government, which along with your council tax, pays for the Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) service we provide.
To meet these financial challenges, we are reviewing the service which currently provides 10 HWRCs across the county, in order to save £1million over the next four years, with £250,000 saved in 2014/2015 [Budget reference 13-006-10].
As a result, we are proposing to make some changes to the number of HWRCs available and to the current opening hours and days.
The HWRCs are a key component to the county’s waste management infrastructure. Providing a high quality, efficient service that meets the needs of Northamptonshire residents and represents good value for money for the council taxpayer is a priority to us.
In the online survey below we provide more detail about these proposals and ask you for your opinion. Even if you don’t currently use the HWRCs, we would still like to hear your views as this will still help to shape the future of the service.
