Views on recycling centre opening hours

PEOPLE have the chance to have a say on the future of waste recycling in their area.

Consultation on household waste recycling centres in East Durham has been launched.

Durham County Council is consulting with residents on proposals to change opening hours at Horden, Thornley and Coxhoe household waste recycling centres.

The council is keen to get views on the proposals, particularly from people who use the three sites.

Surveys will be carried out with visitors to the three sites until Saturday, June 30 and residents are being urged to go along to one of the sites on the dates and times listed to give their views. East Durham area action partnership (AAP) has also held sessions to consider the new proposals and a decision will be taken later in the year.

Dates for the sessions at the Horden facility are: Saturday, June 30, 1.30pm-3.30pm.

Sessions at the Thornley site will be on: Thursday, June 21, 1.30pm-4pm. Saturday, June 23, 1.30pm-3.30pm. Saturday, June 30, 10am-12.30pm.
