Waste & Recycling

We run a fortnightly collection of waste and recycling in Hart. Visit My Area to find out when your collections take place. You need to enter your postcode and select your address. Then your next bin collection dates will show and from there you can click through and view a bin collection calendar.

Please note: There will be changes to collections over Christmas and New Year. Please see our Hart Christmas collections leaflet to view the changes in your collection. You can  recycle your real Christmas tree at one of the locations listed in our Christmas tree recycling leaflet. Alternatively, if you subscribe to our garden waste collection scheme, you can leave your tree beside your green bin.  Excess cardboard can be left beside your recycling bin for collection too.

This Christmas we are trying to encourage all residents to waste less. Here are some top tips:

  • Use brown paper to wrap presents - it's recyclable
  • Think about the presents you buy...experiences might be better and certainly have less packaging
  • Buy less food... Have a serious think about what you need and don't buy too much
  • Be left over ready - look up what you can freeze and have your containers at the ready

What can and can't be recycled: 

Yes Please No Thanks
Paper - all clean dry paper Wrapping Paper - this is often heavily decorated with foil, glitter and ribbons
Tins - including biscuit tins Polystyrene
Cans - all drinks cans Food waste
Plastic bottles - no other  plastic Plastic pots, tubs, trays and wrapping
Cardboard - including Christmas cards - but not glittered ones please General waste
Aerosols - empty ones only please Bubble wrap

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!
