New Household Waste Recycling Centre, Eastleigh
I recently visited the new recycling centre in Eastleigh and was hugely impressed. Efficient, plenty of space, clear instructions, and easy access. The sales area is also wonderful for those who can’t stop shopping or ‘pick a bargain’.
Here are a few pictures that I took:

On my way to work, I’m greeted with the beauty of daffodils, snowdrops, and crocus, which began to bloom in December.
In contrast, I also see unsightly items dumped by irresponsible people.
Today I saw a large heavy item being left on the beautiful field parallel to Bodycoats Road: a SKI trainer Weslo glide mdx plus ski trainer exercise machine.
A dog walker told me that the item was first dumped on the walkway near the Central Precinct, but was later moved to the field.
Similarly, in the wood near me at South Miller’s Dale, fly tipping seems rather common.
No wonder there is a warning sign – “No Dumping; Penalty £100.”
The selfishness of some people is both infuriating and embarrassing.
Report fly tipping
I reported the large exercise machine found in Chandler’s Ford to Eastleigh Borough Council this afternoon via its report fly-tipping page.
Hampshire has a few well-run Household Waste Recycling Centres. There is absolutely no excuse why people should harm the environment.
Changes to Hampshire’s Household Waste Recycling Centres
Residents will have a chance to have their say on changes to Hampshire’s Household Waste Recycling Centres, according to Hampshire County Council.
On 20th January 2016, the County Council confirmed that residents will be asked their views on how savings can best be made in the running of Hampshire’s Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) as it deals with the impact of the Government’s announcement on reductions in funding for local councils.
Councillor Seán Woodward, Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment at Hampshire County Council, said: “Ongoing reductions in Government funding mean we must continually look very carefully at where we focus our resources to make sure we are using the funding we have wisely.”
“However, the scale of funding reductions for councils, particularly in the South of England, announced by the Government in December was much more severe than we had expected, and we are now reviewing our savings plans.”
The County Council will be keen to hear from as many people as possible about what they think of the different proposals.
All responses will be analysed and presented to Councillor Woodward to make a decision on any changes later in the year.
Currently there is a large number of Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) in Hampshire.
They are open seven days a week, only closing on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Day.
Councillor Seán Woodward said, “It is clear we are no longer in a financial position to be able to provide this level of service. We have been working on a number of scenarios on which to base a public consultation, asking residents how they think savings could best be made. We will need to keep all our options open, including the possibility of charging for non domestic waste, reducing opening hours and the pattern of sites across the county.”
