Recycling centre rest on ice

Homeowners will no longer be able to dump old fridges and freezers because all of Hampshire’s waste centers are full.

More than 2,500 fridges and freezers are filling up the waste centres across the county, according to Hampshire County Council.

The council has been dealing with the waste, after regulations from the government requiring manufacturers to collect the items stopped operating.

Cllr Rob Humby said: “I’m very disappointed to hear that the national issue of collecting, storing and treating fridges is now having an impact on residents in Hampshire.

“This problem has been building up for months with no effective measures being put in place. Therefore, we are pressing the government to tackle this issue as a matter of urgency.”
