Bank Holiday bin collections

Wednesday, 24 May, 2023

Your rubbish, recycling and garden waste collections will continue as normal on Monday 29 May (Spring bank holiday Monday).

Our crews start at 7am so please ensure your bin is ready for collection to avoid it being missed. 

To find out which collection week you are on (rubbish or recycling) visit the Where I live page on our website and enter your postcode.

Don't just recycle - recycle right 

Items in your recycling bin should be:

  • Empty, rinse and dry all plastic bottles, tins and cans 
  • Place lids back on all bottles 
  • Items should go in loose (all items separate)
  • Flatten cardboard – keep it dry (large pieces of neatly flattened cardboard can be left by the side of your recycling bin

A full list of what can and cannot be recycled can be found here.

Using glass banks

Please make every effort to take all your glass jars and bottles to the glass banks around the borough. All colours of glass can be put in the same bank. 

We kindly ask you to avoid using glass banks at night to minimise noise nuisance to neighbouring properties.  

These banks are emptied regularly and we make every effort to ensure recycling banks sites remain in a clean and tidy condition.   It is advisable to check both sides of the glass bank for available capacity. If the skip is full, please do not leave your glass on the floor, there are many other sites around the borough for you to visit.

Having a clear out?

If you're looking to have a Bank Holiday clear out at home, please remember that batteries and electronics cannot be placed in any of your household bins as these present a fire risk to our vehicles and crews. 

Please take batteries to collection points in shops. Unwanted electronics can be donated to good causes, if accepted, or go to your Household Waste Recycling Centre.

To check what materials can be accepted, look up your recycling centre on Hampshire County Council's website.  

Don't forget to book your visit here first.
