Community Recycling Centres to open for one hour less
Posted on: Wednesday 17 April 2019
Bridgend County Borough’s three Community Recycling Centres will soon open for one hour less each day.
Cabinet Members from Bridgend County Borough Council have agreed to reduce the opening hours slightly as the move will save the local authority £17,000 each year without causing residents too much disruption.
Councillor Hywel Williams, the council’s Deputy Leader, said: “Reducing the opening hours will have a minimal impact on recycling levels but will contribute towards the huge financial savings that the council is required to make.
“This change was one of the money-saving suggestions that received support from the residents who completed our ‘Shaping Bridgend’s Future’ budget consultation last autumn.”
Details of the exact changes to opening hours at the centres in Tythegston, Brynmenyn and Maesteg will be announced soon.
