We have been advised that from Monday 3 to Friday 21 December, Hempsted Household Recycling Centre, near Gloucester, will be temporarily closed to allow some important upgrades to the site.  This work follows a similar upgrade completed at Pyke Quarry HRC, near Stroud last summer. For more details please use the link below:


During this closure residents will be redirected to their closest alternative centre, these being: 

  • Pyke Quarry HRC near Stroud (closed on Wednesdays)
  • Oak Quarry HRC near Coleford (closed on Tuesdays)
  • Wingmoor Farm HRC in Stoke Orchard (closed on Wednesdays)

 Hempsted HRC will re-open on Saturday 22 December. There is never a good time to have to close a HRC site, but December is historically one of the quietest months at the sites and we hope that residents will welcome the improvements when the site re-opens.
