Christmas bin collections

Over Christmas and New Year, your bin day may change. Please note: we collect one type of waste from your property each week. We will empty whichever bin is due that week.

Garden waste collections are always suspended from mid-December to mid-January. This is to allow resources to be used to catch up on refuse and recycling collections. Garden waste collections stop after Friday 11th December and re-start in mid-January – see the table below.

Please check on whichever table below refers to your bin due that week.

Christmas trees

We will collect your real Christmas tree with the garden waste when the service resumes. Please leave it beside your bin - no need to chop it up or put it in the garden waste sack.

Food waste

Find ways to store food External Hyperlink, and use up left-overs External Hyperlink, to reduce the amount of food in your bin, and save you money.

Recycling

Please put paper, card, tins, cans, aerosols and plastic bottles in the blue lid recycling bin. Unfortunately no plastic other than bottles are accepted (no plastic pots, tubs, trays or packaging). Please put everything loose in the blue lid bin, not in bags. Gift wrap cannot be put in recycling bins.

Empty jars and bottles can go in the glass recycling banks around the Borough.

Clothes and textiles can be taken to the textile banks.

Household waste recycling centres 'HWRC'

You can take excess refuse or other household items to a household waste recycling centre (HWRC). They are open every day except 25 and 26 December and 1 January, but you may need to book a slot to visit. If you have any queries about disposing of household rubbish please check our A - Z of waste or contact us on 01329 236100 or email at customerservicecentre@fareham.gov.uk.
