You can order bins for refuse or recycling and garden waste sacks by calling us on 01329 236100 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also purchase garden waste sacks from the Civic Offices.
It is recommended that you put your house name or number on your bins so you can identify which is yours.
There is a charge to householders of £30 (including delivery) for a new or replacement green top refuse bin. If you have moved house, you will need to buy a bin if there is not one there. This applies to new-build and existing properties. Only Fareham Borough Council issued bins are acceptable and no others will be emptied.
There is no charge for bins under the following circumstances:
You are allowed one refuse bin per property unless you qualify for extra capacity as a larger household or have exceptional circumstances. An extra, smaller refuse bin may be offered on a means tested basis.
Please allow a minimum of 10 working days for delivery of bins once payment has been received.
Replacement reusable garden waste sack are available free of charge from the Civic Offices. Alternatively, there is a delivery charge of £5 for it to be delivered.

There is a charge of £25.00 for 25 bags (including delivery) or £6.00 for 5 bags (no delivery, packs of 5 bags are available by collection only). You can put out as many of these bags on collection day as you wish.

Composting is an easy way to reduce the amount of waste in your bin. As well as holding waste such as peelings, uncooked vegetables, tea bags, straw and pet bedding, a composter will improve the soil in your garden. Hampshire residents can buy reasonably priced composters .
