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 (black lidded bin) collections.
We will endeavour to collect your recycling (green lidded bin) and garden waste (brown lidded bin) on your regular day, but this is likely to become increasingly difficult.
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.
Your household rubbish should be put in your GREEN bin.
Please recycle as much as you can. It’s important to recycle the right things because the wrong items in your bin could mean that everything in the bin lorry is rejected and has to be disposed of as ordinary rubbish.
Anything that can’t be recycled should go in your waste bin, with the following exceptions:
- clinical waste (we provide a free domestic service for this)
- commercial, trade or industrial waste
- building material
- electrical products
- garden waste (this is available as a separate service)
- glass (we provide free glass collections and bottle banks around the district)
- hot ashes
- paint/chemicals or oil
- poisonous or noxious waste
- scrap metal
- stones or brick rubble
If any of these items are found in your household rubbish bin, it may not be emptied. Any offending items will need to be removed before the next collection.
Hampshire County Council's Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) are currently closed due to coronavirus.
