BARWELL TIP, based on Stapleton Lane, is now operating under winter opening hours.
It means that the tip is now open from 9am to 5pm, meaning that it is open for one hour less than it previously was last month, before it swapped over to the new hours.
The change came into place three days ago (1 October), when Leicestershire County Council and Rutland County Council announced they would be closing their sites earlier for the winter season.
But, it will only use these recently announced hours until the last day of October – 31 October.
A spokesperson for Barwell Parish Council has further stated that site users will see these opening hours change once again starting on 1 November just next month – it will shut another whole hour earlier – this time at 4pm.
They explained: “There will be a further reduction in opening hours from Monday, November 1, when sites will close at 4pm instead.”
The November hours, of 9am to 4pm, which start on 1 November, will remain in place until 31 March next year.
