Press Release

18 August 2021

Garden waste service suspended until further notice

The Council’s garden waste collection service has been suspended today until further notice.  This difficult decision has been taken as a result of a number of key staff being affected by the pandemic and to ensure the core services of collecting waste and recycling can continue without disruption.  Any households affected are likely to have to wait a further two weeks for their garden waste to be collected on the next due date.

Residents are advised to put their garden waste sacks out as usual. However, if they have not been collected within 48 hours of their normal collection day, residents will be required to either take them to a recycling centre themselves or re-present on their next scheduled collection date. Only one bag will be picked up in any subsequent rounds, as the garden waste lorries have weight limits they cannot exceed safely and are operating during the peak of the garden waste season.

Fareham Borough Council is doing all it can to ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum and apologises for the inconvenience to residents.  Service updates will be posted on the Council’s website and on social media.
