Household Waste Recycling Centres: Temporary increase in opening hours

Sheffield’s five Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) are currently operating under increased opening times, with all sites open 7 days a week until 30th September 2021.  On 1st October the sites will change to their normal Winter opening times (9.30am to 3.30pm) and open/closed days, a reduction in opening times of 48 hours per week.


We are proposing to extend the current HWRC 7 day opening for a further month.  This will see all five HWRCs remain open 7 days a week until the end of October 2021, rather than 30th September as per the current agreement. 


The recommendation will increase site availability during October when garden waste is still produced in reasonable volumes and will mitigate against increased site demand associated with the risk of suspensions of the garden waste collection service due to the impact of Covid-19 on the Veolia workforce.
