Garden waste

East Hampshire residents can receive fortnightly garden waste collections from just £68 per year.

The garden waste collected goes to a composting site in Hampshire and is made into organic soil conditioner, widely used in local parks and formal gardens.

New customers can sign up for the service online using their MyEHDC account.

Existing customers can renew their licence(s) using MyEHDC.
