The household waste recycling centre on the Walworth estate at Scott Close, Andover will see its summer opening times slashed under cost cutting plans agreed by the Tory controlled County Council recently.
This means that in Andover, the site will open later at 9am and close one hour earlier at 6pm between March and September. I fear that this will mean that some people will not be able to access the the service at all. Especially those who work full time.
The plain truth is that this is all about saving money. Unfortunately, I think that the shorter opening hours will lead to an increase in fly tipping of rubbish on the streets. Which is an awful prospect for Andover, and a lot more costly in the long run!
Lets hope that they have a rethink on this idea, soon.Leave a comment
