NEWS: Cycles and Recycling Centres

There has been a good result to the lobbying for allowing cyclists to use the Hampshire Waste Recycling Centres from which they were previously excluded.
As from Monday 19th July those on cycles can make a booking like anyone in another vehicle.

Hampshire County Council say:
“Cyclists wishing to visit the recycling centre from 19 July 2021 can do so through the booking system, by selecting a convenient time slot in the same way as a vehicle user. When booking please enter “BIKE” in the registration field.

This is a recognition that the previous system was unfair and one which will be welcomed.

Pedestrian and Mobility scooter access is still restricted. However trials are commencing at three centres to determine whether it may be possible.
