After Labour action, Hull’s City’s three household waste and recycling centres are set to open seven days a week from September 2021.
The centres which are located in Burma Drive, Sutton Fields and Wiltshire Road will now reopen on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Portfolio Rosie Nicola said, “The last 18 months have been unprecedented, and the amount of time people are spending at home has increased significantly. Residents are carrying out more home DIY and garden renovations, resulting in an increase in disposal waste.
“We’ve listened to public feedback and recognise that there is a need for the three waste centres to be open seven days a week. Strong financial management of the Council’s budgets has enabled us to find the money to make this happen.”
Labour-controlled Hull Council has a range of waste management services for residents to dispose of their waste. Hull is one of only a few councils nationally to offer a free service to remove the first five bulky household items. In 2011 the Lib Dem charging policy was scrapped when Labour regained control of the Council. This remains a huge benefit to the 45% of Hull residents who do not access to a car.
Hull also provides one of the most comprehensive kerbside collection services in the country
Call 01482 300300 or visit hull.gov.uk if you have a bulky item that needs collecting.
The three waste and recycling centres will open 10 am-5 pm, Monday – Sunday, by September 2021.
