Warwickshire residents urged to book a slot at the tip this summer

GREEN-minded Warwickshire residents are being urged to book a slot to visit their local tip at the busiest time of the year.

Summer is the time of year when the county’s nine household waste recycling centres are at their busiest.

And in order to avoid disappointment and to keep the sites running as smoothly as possible, Warwickshire County Council is reminding all residents that they must book a slot before visiting.

If there is availability, HWRC appointments can be booked up to a few minutes before arrival. There is usually plenty of availability on weekday afternoons, especially Wednesday afternoons where all sites except Shipston, Stockton and Wellesbourne are open until 6pm.

There is a simple online booking process via www.warwickshire.gov.uk/hwrc

Alternatively, bookings can be made via the Eventbrite app.

Visitors booking on the day will need a way to demonstrate they have made the booking, which can be on a smartphone or tablet, or printed out. Visitors booking in advance will be on the list held at the recycling centre.

Over the coming weeks during peak times – weekends and weekday mornings – staff will be routinely checking bookings. This may be at the gate or within the skip area of the site. On occasion, when the site is fully booked, those without a booking will be turned away.

WCC’s environment spokesperson Coun Heather Timms said: β€œThe booking system at our recycling centres is popular with most of our visitors and what they like most is the reduced queuing and the efficient experience on site.

“I want to thank our visitors for their ongoing dedication to recycling which helps to reduce resource use and keeps material in circulation to reduce climate impact. This dedication is an important element of our commitment to create a Warwickshire that is sustainable now and for future generations.”
