Leicestershire County Council is considering restricting non-residents’ use of its recycling and household waste sites.

The county council has drawn up a list of options to save more than £1m and is proposing to launch a consultation in the 
winter.

Possible changes include:

• restricting non-Leicestershire residents’ use of the sites

• charging non-Leicestershire residents and other groups to use the sites

• restricting the materials which can be taken to the sites, such as plasterboard and other DIY waste

• introducing charges for certain materials, including DIY waste

• reducing site opening times

The planned consultation will be discussed by the council’s cabinet on November 19.
