We will be submitting our petition to Hampshire County Council, ahead of it's next FULL COUNCIL Meeting, on Thursday, 2nd November. This meeting may give final approval to close up to half of all Recycling Centres cross the county. Please encourage as many of the users of the Household Waste Recycling Centre in Alton to sign this petition, within the next 30 days. Thank you.
To: Hampshire County Council
SAVE ALTON'S RECYCLING CENTRE
PLEASE DO NOT CLOSE THE HOUSEHOLD WASTE RECYCLING CENTRE IN ALTON.
Why is this important?
We all want to protect our environment. We want to do the "right thing' and stop stuffing our rubbish into the ground or burning it in incinerators - that's why we all want to recycle more.
With planned cuts to Altons' Household Waste Recycling Centre opening times, and new charges for certain types of waste, we are already seeing an increase in flytipping. There have been reports on the Alton News Facebook Page, and the recent BBC South programme 'Inside Out' showed the scale and cost of the problem (http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b07v6yk6/inside-out-south-19092016).
If we lose our recycling centre in Alton, we could be faced with a journey to Bordon or Petersfield and we would see a further increase in the amount of flytipping.
Please sign our petition today, to send a clear message to Hampshire County Council that we do not want our Recycling Centre to close.
