Rubbish

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 lidded bin) collections.

We will endeavour to collect your recycling (black 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.

Our service

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:

If any of these items are found in your household rubbish bin, it may not be emptied.

Some of the items listed above can be disposed of at Hampshire County Council's Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs).
