Fly tipping
       Fly tipping is always a problem wherever is occurs.   Recently I was contacted to
       take a look at this problem occurring in Byams Lane, on investigation I found that
       a number of mattresses had been tucked away under the trees.   As this land is
       owned by MOD I contacted the Welfare Office and am pleased to say that they
       where already aware and were in the process of removing the mattresses.   I
       wish all fly tipping incidents were as easy to deal with.

       Disposal of Fridges & Freezers
       HCC have advised the District Council that they cannot accept fridges and
       freezers for recycling due to a national backlog.   Therefore for the time being the
       District Council cannot accept any more through their collection system, those
       that are already booked in will be collected.  To keep abreast of this situation visit where you will be able to find out the latest
       information regarding how fridges and freezers can be disposed of responsibly.

       Household Waste Recycling Centres
       Following on from the recent consultation on the H/H recycling centres Councillor
       Rob Humby (Executive Member for Environment & Transport at HCC)
       announced “For the first time we will be opening up Hampshire’s Waste
       Recycling Centres to small businesses.  I am pleased that these changes have
       been made to allow “small white van man” to use the HWRC sites, the only
       exception being at Efford.
       A charge based system came into effect from 1  October for this commercial type
       waste, which will range from £35 for Estate Cars up to £280 for Vans up 3.5
       tonnes.   Also it will now be possible for residents to take non household DIY
       waste such as soil and rubble at a cost of £2,50 and plasterboard at a cost of £10
       per sheet or £6 per bag.   Cement-bonded asbestos will be accepted at Andover,
       Basingstoke, Efford and Netley HWRC’s.

       Cllr: Sue Bennison
