CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19): We are following government advice. Updates about any impacts on our services will be added here:

Household Waste & Recycling Centres (HWRCs) Hampshire County Council have reopened their HWRCs for waste you cannot store safely at home. See for opening times and further information

Bank holiday collections: Rubbish and recycling will be collected as normal on Monday 25 May

How to put your sacks out for collection: It's important you can identify your own sacks by-

  • putting your sacks out for collection at the edge of your own property
  • NOT stackpiling your sacks with your neighbours

If your sacks are not collected on collection day, take them back in and check

Only set out your normal household waste: Many households are presenting more waste than usual, help us by not presenting the following:

  • house clearance or DIY waste  
  • garden waste
  • un-bagged waste, furniture or electricals

 If you or anyone in your household -

  • has confirmed Coronavirus
  • has symptoms of Coronavirus
  • is self-isolating

Double bag your personal waste:

  • Any personal waste such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloth should be stored separately to other waste. Put these items in a bag, then in a second bag. 
  • Keep these bags tied and separate from other waste in the room/s in which you are self-isolating.
  • Put these bags into your black sack for collection.

Do not put your sacks out for collection for at least 3 days

  • For example, if you have filled/tied a bag on Monday and your collection is on Thursday, you can put that bag out for collection on Thursday morning.
  • If you have filled/tied a bag on Monday and your collection is on Wednesday, store that bag at home until your collection day the following week.

This advice is based on guidance from central government to help prevent transmission of Coronavirus.
