   Household waste dumps - changes proposed by Dorset Waste Partnership    December 24, 2014

The proposed optons are as below:

The possible changes being considered are to:

A.   Close one or more of the 11 Dorset HRCs on a permanent basis. (Specific HRCs have not yet been identified and would be subject to further consultation.) Potential savings: Up to £100,000 a year per site

B.   Charge for entry at one or more HRCs instead of closing them. Potential savings: £65,000 a year per site

C.   Close all HRCs for up to three weekdays. Potential savings: up to £300,000 a year

D.   Charge residents to dispose of non-household materials, such as DIY waste and tyres. Potential savings: £250,000 a year

E.   Remove the subsidy the DWP pays neighbouring councils for Dorset residents to use their HRCs and ask residents to pay instead (e.g. £5 per visit).Potential savings: £70,000 a year

More than one of these changes may be needed.
