In 2015 Leicestershire County Council consulted on a range of cost-cutting proposals. As a result, the following changes to recycling and household waste sites were agreed:

New opening times
Each of the 14 recycling and household waste sites will open five days per week throughout the year:

• October to March, 9am – 4pm
• April to September, 9am – 7pm

Charges for non-household items
From April 2016, recycling and household waste sites will charge to accept some 'non-household' waste.
