Due to the commitment of dedicated residents like you, Hart recycles more of its waste than many other districts in the country and is one of the best performing council’s in Hampshire. Whilst this is a great achievement, surveys have shown that significant quantities of recyclable material are still being put in the wrong bin, and being sent to the energy recovery facility instead of being recycled. To try and address this, the Council has been considering ways in which it can encourage residents to recycle more. These include:
- Making it easier to understand what can and can’t be recycled by providing clear information to all residents. Here you can find a copy of the Recycling and Waste Services Guide
- Reducing the cost of recycling, glass and garden waste bins until the 1st September 2015 to encourage residents purchase more recycling capacity.
- Encouraging residents to put recyclable items in the correct bin by introducing a new waste collection policy so in future any black bins that obviously contain items that can be recycled such as garden waste, cardboard, paper, tins, cans, aerosols, plastic bottles, glass bottles and jars will have warnings hangers left on them. Ultimately if the warnings are not heeded then the householder will be contacted by a council officer and the black bin may not be emptied.
Please help Hart to recycle more by putting recyclable material in the correct bin, it is not only good for the environment but helps Hart keep its council tax down, so saving you money.
