New opening hours at York recycling centres
8:30am Saturday 24th March 2012 in Books
WASTE recycling centres in York will have longer opening hours from the start of April.
The new times, which will run from April 1 to September 30, will see Hazel Court open from 8.30am to 7pm, Monday to Saturday, and 8.30am to 4pm on Sundays, while the Towthorpe and Strensall site will be open every day from 8.30am to 7pm.
Beckfield Lane, which will close from April 16 following City of York Council budget cuts, will be open from 5pm to 7pm, Monday and Friday, and 10am to 2pm on weekends during its final days.
All sites will be open as usual on Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday.
“As the evenings become longer, the opening times have been extended to allow residents to make full use of the recycling facilities available,” said Coun Dafydd Williams, the council’s cabinet member for communities and neighbourhoods.
