Press Release

1 September 2021

Sign up to Fareham Borough Council’s new garden waste subscription service today!

Free garden waste collection is ending in Fareham in December and residents can now sign up to the new ‘Clip and Collect’ garden waste subscription service from Fareham Borough Council.

For a small annual fee, plus the one-off cost of a new brown lid wheelie bin, the council will collect garden waste every two weeks. Not only are the new wheelie bins at least three times larger than the current garden waste sacks so residents can dispose of more in one go, but they keep waste contained, dry and less messy.

Residents can have up to five bins and can also share a bin with a neighbour. Plus, every bin collected will help reduce carbon emissions in the Borough as it avoids residents having to make trips to the tip.

Signing up is easy and should just take a few minutes. Simply sign up online at www.fareham.gov.uk/gardenwaste or you can call 01329 236100 and ask one of our officers to sign you up over the phone.

Residents can choose from two bin sizes:

140 litre wheelie bin:

240 litre wheelie bin:

However, residents who sign up for the scheme between 1 September and 31 October can take advantage of a special early-bird scheme and purchase your choice of wheelie bin for half price:

Executive Member for Streetscene at Fareham Borough Council, Councillor Ian Bastable, said: “The decision to begin charging for garden waste collection was not one which was taken lightly. It was agreed by the Council’s Executive in September 2020 and brings Fareham in line with more than half of councils across the country and all of those in Hampshire which now charge for this service. It was decided that a subscription service was the fairest option for all residents as not all properties require garden waste collection and the service will be paid for by those that choose to use it.”

To find out more, go to www.fareham.gov.uk/gardenwaste. You can also email enquiries to clipandcollect@fareham.gov.uk and a Council officer will get back to you as soon as possible.
