Five-day closure of Hempsted Household Recycling Centre in June
From 19 to 23 June, Hempsted Household Recycling Centre (HRC) in Gloucester will be closed to finish the work already underway to accommodate more traffic and reduce queues.
The changes will take effect after the June closure and are being made in response to customer feedback and increased use.
The temporary closure is necessary for the work to be completed safely, but the duration has been kept to a minimum.
Work includes extending the upper road area and creating a multiple lane system, as well as increasing the boundary size to accommodate heavy vehicles. The plans will also make it possible for a reuse shop to be added in the future.
Alternative recycling facilities are available at the HRCs at Fosse Cross, Wingmoor Farm, Oak Quarry and Pyke Quarry however residents may prefer to plan their visit before or after the closure dates to avoid potential queues at other sites.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this essential closure.
