In addition, Norse South East, on behalf of Havant Borough Council will collect one additional bag of waste from each household over the Christmas and New Year period. This is because the amount of rubbish produced per person in the borough increases during this time.  Extra recycling can be placed in a clear plastic bag or an untied carrier bag next to your recycling bin (as is the case the whole year through).  All bins must be out, ready for collection by 7am.

The Garden Waste Collection Service will be suspended between Monday 26th December 2017 and Friday 6th January 2018. Household Waste Recycling Centres will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

Havant Borough Council’s Customer Service Centre can be contacted with questions or queries during their festive opening hours on 023 9244 6019 or by visiting the website.
