Recycling waste

Here you can view our recycling made easy leaflet that guides you on what you can and can't recycle. 

Do you know what plastics can be recycled in your blue bin?

Watch this short video and take the test to see if you're recycling all the right plastics.

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    

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. 

You may have more than one crate and these are currently free. If you would prefer a wheeled bin for your glass collection we can supply a 140 litre bin for £31.49. Please contact us to order a crate or bin

Please visit one of our bottle banks if you would like to recycle extra glass on one of your non collection days.

Recycling Centres

Recycling centres offer additional facilities for when you need to recycle items which aren't collected from the kerbside. They are also great for helping charities and giving unwanted items a new home!

The My Area section of our website will show you where your nearest recycling centres are. If you need to find a recycling bank by type of material you would like to recycle then please see our recycling sites by material leaflet.
