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 by 6.30 am:

  • Plastic bottles    
  • Tins    
  • Cans    
  • 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)  

Here you can view what else can and can't be recycled in your blue recycling bin and view useful information on understanding recycling labels

Glass Crate

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 can order a new or additional glass recycling box by completing the glass box order form.

You can also buy a maroon wheeled bin for your bottles and jars if you need the space or find this easier to put out for collection for £35.00 by calling 01252 622122.

Recycling Centres and Household Waste and Recycling Centres 

If you have items you are intending to take to charity shops please ensure they are open and accepting donations, do not leave them outside the shop.  

​The Household waste and recycling centre at Springwell Lane is now open between 9am-6pm daily. You must book an appointment to dispose of your items. Visit the Hampshire County Council waste and recycling centre website for more information.
