Will the hubs be open every day of the week?  

Each hub has different opening hours, so please make sure you take a look at these before visiting.  

Why are you reducing the number of hubs?  

With current UK supply issues of containers, this new approach will improve availability of containers by ensuring the hubs are always adequately stocked, with deliveries planned twice a week. 

Prior to the pandemic, only three hubs stocked recycling containers.  

The number of hubs was increased during the covid pandemic to reduce travel and enable more local access to receptacles. 

A recent review of recycling container distribution has found that the current system is inefficient.  

By reducing the number of hubs which stock containers, it will be easier to ensure that each hub is regularly re-stocked with containers.    

Why have you chosen these hubs?  

The hubs have been chosen because they provide collection points across the borough. In addition, these hubs are staffed to help ensure that stock distribution is managed effectively.
