MP asks for feedback on later Sort It centre opening hours
Published on: 04 Nov 2017
Local MP Luke Hall says he is to look into operating hours of local sort-it centres after residents said they are inconvenient for working families.
Sort It centres across South Gloucestershire are open 8:30am to 4:30pm 7 days a week for people to recycle household waste, but there is no evening opening.
South Gloucestershire Council has told Mr Hall that the present hours offer the best options within the budget available, with later opening hours in the past seeing a low number of users.
The MP is now seek residents thoughts on whether later opening hours on one day a week would be useful.
He said; “Just as the Mall offers late night shopping on a Thursday, many people are asking whether the Sort-It Centre should offer later access one night a week. As a Yate resident myself, I am asking for feedback on whether there is enough demand for the centre to open later and close later one day a week."
