North Hampshire residents closest to West Berkshire due to receive tip permits
Hampshire residents living close to the West Berkshire border and more than 10 miles away from a Hampshire household waste recycling centre (HWRC) will receive a permit to allow them to use West Berkshire Council’s HWRC at Newtown Road.
The move comes after West Berkshire Council introduced a permit scheme for West Berkshire residents to use the HWRC. Following discussions with neighbouring Hampshire County Council, an agreement was reached whereby residents who live furthest away from a Hampshire site would be issued with permits to access the West Berkshire site at Newtown Road for a 12 month period.
Councillor Rob Humby, Executive Member for Environment and Transport at Hampshire County Council, said: “I’m pleased we’ve come to an agreement on a transitional arrangement for those residents living furthest away from a Hampshire site, and grateful to our colleagues at West Berkshire for working with us on this. Colleagues at Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council have helped us identify the addresses of people living furthest from a Hampshire HWRC, and we will be sending special Hampshire permits to these households to use from 20 December 2016.
Further information about waste and recyclable material accepted, and opening times of the Newtown Road HWRC is available on West Berkshire Council’s website.
Details of locations and opening times of the 24 household waste recycling centres in Hampshire are available on Hampshire County Council’s website.
