You can order bins for refuse or recycling and garden waste sacks by calling us on 01329 236100 or emailing email@example.com.
You can now collect a Garden Waste Sack 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 £36 (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.
The Civic Offices are now open, so you can collect a garden waste sack in person. Please contact the Council to arrange a delivery if you are unable to get to the Civic Offices.
Please note, we will not empty green sacks which are not marked with Fareham Borough Council. Only one garden waste sack issued by the Council can be collected from your property.
You can buy disposable garden waste bags for extra garden waste, but these will only be collected up to early December 2021. There is a charge of £45.00 for 25 bags (including delivery) or £12.00 for 5 bags. You can put out as many of these bags on collection day as you wish. Please contact the Council to order them or they can be colleced in person from the Civic Offices by paying at the cash office.
Please note only disposable garden waste bags issued by the Council will be collected.
From 2022, the garden waste service is changing, and these disposable bags and garden waste sacks will no longer be collected.
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 .
When new houses are built, the developer may buy the bins; but if not, residents will be required to purchase bins. Developers must buy the communal bins for new flats. Current charges for refuse and recycling bins are:
240 litre = £48.00 including VAT
340 litre = £74.00 including VAT
1,100 litre = £452.00 including VAT
