Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) in County Durham will soon be switching to summer opening hours.
From Sunday April 1 until Sunday September 30, HWRCs including the facility on Aycliffe Business Park will be open from 9am until 6pm, Monday to Sunday.
Centres are open as normal during the Easter holiday period, unless stated otherwise.
John Shannon, Durham County Council’s strategic waste manager, said: “HWRCs opening longer from 1 April enables residents more opportunity to use the sites to dispose of waste and recycle household materials.
“Also, we’re once again opening Hett Hills HWRC on additional days during the Easter period as we know recycling centres are busy during this time. This will give people flexibility to dispose of their waste.”
