Important bin collection update - 8 February 2021

We are currently experiencing high levels of waste collection staff self-isolating due to COVID-19. 

Because of the work we and our contractor Serco have undertaken towards the end of the last year to prepare for a second spike, we have two additional bubble crews in place to cover COVID-related absences. These will assist us in continuing to deliver all of our waste and recycling services during this challenging time. 

As always our priority is to protect the safety of our key worker staff and the residents we serve alongside protecting the core waste, recycling and clinical waste services. We are working hard to ensure our bin crews are tested quickly to enable them to return to work if their results are negative and will provide updates through our website and social media.

If we need to suspend non-essential services such as garden waste or bulky waste collections we will post this information via our website and social media in the first instance.

In the meantime we thank residents for their understanding and patience during this difficult period and ask them to help keep our crews and themselves safe by wiping down bin handles when putting out the bins and bringing them back in again.


Our Recycling and Waste Services guide gives a useful summary of our services, what can and can't be recycled and frequently asked questions.

Report a missed bin

You can report a missed bin collection, or a missing bin, by completing this online form

Please note: All collections are made from the kerbside outside of your property between 6.30am and 8pm on your specified days. If we've missed your bin, please allow us up to 8pm on the day of collection before reporting it to us, to allow for delays such as weather or road works. Your missed bin will then be collected before the end of the following day.

Each year within Hart District Council we produce over 30 thousand tonnes of waste and recycling. Over 70% of this can be re-used or recycled so use this site to find out how you can do more.
