Watch this short video and take the test to see if you're recycling all the right plastics.
Blue recycling bin
Recycling has never been easier! Simply place these items clean, dry and loose in your blue bin and put out for collection:
- Plastic bottles
- Paper (Please note: Shredded paper cannot be recycled, and must go in your waste bin).
- Card (Cardboard boxes should be flattened and placed next to your blue bin for collection)
We collect all glass bottles and jars from your household in a separate green crate to your general blue recycling bin.
Glass crate collection involves a lot of manual handling and therefore we ask you only to use boxes provided by Hart District Council and do not over fill your box to reduce risk of injury and spillage.
You may have more than one crate and these are currently free. If you would prefer a wheeled bin for your glass collection we can supply a 140 litre bin for £32.59. Please contact us to order a crate or bin.
Recycling Centres and Household Waste and Recycling Centres (HWRCs)
These sites along with charity shops and furniture reuse shops are now closed. If you have items you were intending to take please store them safely at home, do not leave them outside shops.
