Bin collections

Bin collections in East Hampshire will change over the Christmas and New Year period.

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.
