Bin collections

Coronavirus update

We are currently working as hard as we can to keep your waste and recycling collections running as scheduled.

In the event of staff shortages, we will be prioritising domestic waste (green bin) collections.

We will endeavour to collect your recycling (black bin) and garden waste on your regular day, but this is likely to become increasingly difficult.

Our website and social media pages are being updated regularly, so please keep an eye out for service updates in your area.

If you have any queries, please visit our coronavirus FAQs before contacting us.

Thank you very much for your cooperation and patience during this difficult time.

Our service

East Hampshire District Council operates alternate-weekly kerbside recycling (BLACK bin) and waste (GREEN bin) collections. This means that rubbish is collected one week and recycling the next.

Glass is collected from homes every four weeks.

You can find your bin collection day by checking your online calendar. Please enter your postcode and your calendar will be displayed under 'waste and recycling'.

Customers can also sign up to fortnightly garden waste collections from just £68 per year.

Please put your bin out at the edge of your property by 7am on your collection day.

Bin wasn’t collected?

You can report a missed bin 24/7 via your MyEHDC account.

Missed bins must be reported by 4pm on the next working day after your scheduled collection.

If you do not report a missed collection to us within this timeframe, you will have to wait until your next scheduled collection.

Please note, if your bin has been tagged for reasons such as being too heavy or contaminated we will not return. Also, if your bin is not placed on the boundary of your property, it will not be collected and we will not return.

Where should I put my bin to be emptied?

On your collection day, you should place your wheeled bin at the boundary of your property adjacent to the road.

Please make sure the handles are facing out towards the road, as this makes it easier for collection.

Need help?

If you struggle to move your bin, you may qualify for an assisted collection. Please contact 01730 234295 to discuss your needs.

Stay up to date

Sometimes, there may reasons that bins cannot be collected around East Hampshire (bad weather, vehicle breakdowns etc).

To stay up to date, sign up for our bin email alerts or follow the council on Facebook and Twitter.

Who collects your bins?

Our environmental services (waste, recycling, street cleaning, public conveniences and grounds maintenance) are delegated to Havant Borough Council and delivered by Norse South East.
