Blue recycling bin 

Recycling has never been easier!  Simply place these items clean, dry and loose in your blue bin and put out for collection:

  • Plastic bottles    
  • Tins    
  • Cans    
  • Paper (Please note: Shredded paper cannot be recycled, and must go in your waste bin).    
  • Card  (Cardboard boxes should be flattened and placed next to your blue bin for collection)  

Here you can view what else can and can't be recycled in your blue recycling bin and view useful information on understanding recycling labels

Glass Crate

We collect all glass bottles and jars from your household in a separate green crate to your general blue recycling bin.  

Glass crate collection involves a lot of manual handling and therefore we ask you only to use boxes provided by Hart District Council and do not over fill your box to reduce risk of injury and spillage. 

Recycling Centres and Household Waste and Recycling Centres (HWRCs)

Recycling banks for glass are now available to use, however the clothing and textile banks, along with charity shops and furniture reuse shops remain closed.  If you have items you were intending to take please store them safely at home, do not leave them outside shops.  

​The HWRC at Springwell lane is now open between 10am-4pm daily. Visit for more information.
