The consultation on the closure of the Elstree recycling centre is to end in just under two weeks.

Hertfordshire County Council has suggested the closure of the Allum Lane centre as part of cost-cutting measures, and is calling on the public to complete the online consultation.

The results of the consultation will be presented to the council's highways and waste management panel on September 18.

Terry Douris, cabinet member for waste management, said; “We recognise that some of the service changes suggested by AmeyCespa may have an impact on our residents and want your views on their proposals. No decisions have been made yet so it is vital that you let us know what you think of the suggestions.”

A petition against the proposed closure has now received more than 1,100 signatures.

The deadline for consultation responses is August 3- to give your views visit the website www.hertsdirect.org/wastechanges

Ironic that the photo shows a 'recycling centre' sign but the Elstree Recycling centre doesn't even have a sign directing people to it anymore (because big vehicles kept knocking it as some twit had it stuck it out into the road!! but they could still have a sign there if put on the lampost the other way round)! .... So no wonder many have no idea where it is!!

Anyway please do the HCC feedback questionnaire and petition asap.

Elstree recycling centre has the highest recycling rate of all the 17 centres in the borough - please support the petition and MORE IMPORTANTLY fill in the questionnaire. We need this centre, we dont need private housing on this site instead
