Winchester City Council works in partnership with East Hampshire District Council to share services for waste collection, grounds maintenance and street care across both areas, saving more than £2 million in the process.
*A technical problem is currently affecting the ‘View my bin collection calendar’ on the website. Alternative access to bin collection information is available via local view maps at: https://maps.winchester.gov.uk/LocalViewWeb/Sites/lvweb/
Apologies for any inconvenience.
- Recycling Collection Thank you for recycling Right! On average our residents recycled 35% of their waste last year. This is really good but we can all be doing a little bit more by becoming more waste aware!
- Refuse Collection (General Waste) On collection day your household refuse bin must be placed out by 7am. Please make sure it is out in time before the crew visits as they will be unable to return to empty it later.
- Garden Waste Collection Residents can dispose of garden waste using the green sack provided by WCC. Place your sack kerbside on the same day as your refuse collection
- Report It Requesting a service or reporting an issue
- What happens to your waste? Where do all the waste, recycling, green waste and textiles go in Winchester District? Find the answers here.
- Household Waste Recycling Centres There are three Household Waste Recycling Centres (dump/tips) in the district where you can take unwanted household items.
