Service update 27 July:

We are currently experiencing a high level of staff absence due to waste collection employees being required to self-isolate, having been contacted by the NHS Test and Trace app, and an increase in the number of staff testing positive for COVID.

As a result, unfortunately, we are having to suspend all garden waste rounds for the time being in Hart and we will also be unable to collect anything that is outstanding.

Also, although the government has announced a relaxation to the rules on self-isolation for refuse workers, this will not happen automatically but may take a while, due to a rigorous approval process. Waste providers must apply on behalf of each of their employees and some - such as those who have not been doubly vaccinated yet, or who have been in contact with someone who has recently tested positive - will not qualify for the relaxed rules. 

We are monitoring the situation closely and will update you again via this website and social media as soon as we have further information.

In the meantime, we apologise for any inconvenience caused.  We hope to have the services back up and running in a fortnight. However, if this is not possible, we will then consider the extension of garden waste subscriptions for all our subscribers. 

Thank you for your continued patience and support during this challenging time.


Our Recycling and Waste Services guide gives a useful summary of our services, what can and can't be recycled and frequently asked questions.

Report a missed bin 

You can report a missed bin collection, or a missing bin, by completing this online form

Please note: All collections are made from the kerbside outside of your property between 6.30am and 8pm on your specified days. If we've missed your bin, please allow us up to 8pm on the day of collection before reporting it to us, to allow for delays such as weather or road works. Your missed bin will then be collected before the end of the following day.

Each year within Hart District Council we produce over 30 thousand tonnes of waste and recycling. Over 70% of this can be re-used or recycled so use this site to find out how you can do more.
