New opening times for Leicestershire’s waste sites

New opening hours for Leicestershire’s recycling and household waste sites come into force next week.

From Friday, 1 April, the 14 sites across the county will open five days per week throughout the year.

The sites will still have summer and winter opening hours, from April to September, they will open from 9am until 7pm and from October to March, 9am to 4pm.

All sites will open on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Kibworth, Lount, Lutterworth, Melton, Mountsorrel, Shepshed and Whetstone will be closed on Tuesdays and Wednesday.

Barwell, Bottesford, Coalville, Loughborough, Market Harborough, Oadby and Somerby will be closed on Thursdays and Fridays.
