Changes to Recycling Centre opening hours

A note from West Berkshire Council, it looks like the recycling centres will be opening later in the mornings during the week from 1st April…..

Following our recent consultation, we’re updating the Household Waste Recycling Centre hours for both our Padworth and Newtown Road sites.

Starting from 1 April, weekday opening hours will now be 11:00am – 6:00pm. Rest assured, weekend and bank holiday hours will continue as usual and operate 9:00am – 6:00pm, including Easter Monday.

We are making these changes to increase efficiency as both sites are not being fully utilised, meaning we have several appointments unused every day. This will also see us save approximately £59,000 annually.

If you wish to visit one of our centres, please don’t forget to book an appointment and ensure your household is registered for a permit. Further details can be found on our website.
