Bin collections

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 due to coronavirus, we will prioritise waste collections. Please check our website and follow us on social media for the latest updates.

Havant Borough Council operates an alternate weekly kerbside recycling and waste collection service from wheeled bins. This means that rubbish is collected one week and recycling the next.

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'.

We also operate a fortnightly garden waste collection service.

Bin wasn’t collected?

If your bin has been missed, please report this to us by completing our contact us form.

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.

If your rubbish collection is missed, we will collect any extra rubbish which can also be left in sacks next to your bin. 

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.

What to do with your bin?

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

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

Excess rubbish

Any excess rubbish left alongside the bin or on top will not be collected and will have to wait until the next scheduled rubbish collection.

If you have a larger family living permanently at the property, then you may be eligible for an additional bin.

Excess recycling

We will collect excess recycling which can be left in clear plastic sacks or a cardboard box next to your bin. Please ensure excess recycling is clean and dry.

Assisted collections

For those of you who are unable to take the bin to the edge of your property you can request an assisted collection.

This is where the rubbish and recycling crews will collect wheeled bins from an agreed location. 

To organise assisted collections, please use our contact us form.

Who collects your bins?

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