Everleigh Recycling Centre i.e. “the tip”. Having just had the opening hours cut it now appears that the Wiltshire Council wish to close the whole site. It feels like death by a thousand cuts. Let us hope there will be a consultation process. If you feel it is important to the area that it stays open please let Wiltshire Council know before it is too late. In the meantime its new opening hours are 10am until 4pm and closed all day on Wednesday and Thursday.
Minutes for the council meeting  held on the 26th October can be found here.
