Christmas waste collections

Over Christmas and New Year please remember there may be changes to your normal bin collection dates. This includes refuse, recycling, glass, garden waste, clinical, bulky waste and bin deliveries.

We’ve made it simple by putting everything here in one place, so you can be sure not to miss a collection during the festive period.

We’re also saving you the hassle this year and collecting your real Christmas trees with your garden waste or from your communal bin storage areas during the weeks commencing 6 January 2020 and 13 January 2020. For those with garden waste collections, please leave your real tree with your garden waste. Please remove all decorations and if your tree is over five foot tall, please trim it down.

  • Recycling tips

    Unsure about what you can and can’t recycle this Christmas? Here are some festive tips:

    Item

    Recycled?

    How?

    Christmas cards

    Some

    Most can be added to your recycling but when it comes to cards with foil or glitter, it’s best to put them in your waste bin.

     

    But you can recycle your envelopes, TV listings and Christmas catalogues!

     

    Wrapping paper

    Best not to

    Unfortunately most wrapping paper cannot be recycled as they often contain foil or glitter elements, so please don't put it in your recycling bins. Instead the paper will go to one of Hampshire’s Energy Recovery Facilities, where the energy generated from Hampshire’s waste powers local homes.

     

    Better still, re-use the wrapping paper for next year!

     

    Real Christmas trees

    Yes

    We can look after this for you! All you need to do is remove all your decorations (and cut it down if it’s over 5ft) and leave it to be collected with your first scheduled garden waste collection. If you don’t receive a free garden waste collection, you can take your Christmas tree to your local household waste recycling centre.

     

    Paper plates and cups

    Best not to

    It’s tempting to avoid the washing up by using paper plates. But once they have food or grease on them paper plates aren't recyclable, so it’s best to use real plates.

    Christmas crackers

    Some

    We all love a Christmas cracker, but what do you do with it once the Christmas dinner is over? If it’s not glittery or foil, it can be recycled.

    Chocolate wrappers

    No

    As tasty as they are, unfortunately their wrappers can’t be recycled, so they need to be put in your normal waste bin.

    Advent calendars

    Most

    The majority of calendars can be recycled but check the packaging and make sure you eat all the chocolate first and remove any toys.

    Bottles and jars

    Yes

    Rinse them and remove the lids then add them to your glass bin for collection.

    Foil roasting trays

    No

    These need to go in your waste bin as they’re usually left with fat or oil from your Christmas dinner.

    Serviettes and kitchen roll

    No

    As they’re usually damp or food stained, they need to go in your waste bin.

    Boxes and food packaging

    Sometimes

    Check the packaging for the recycling logo and make sure you rinse it before it goes in the recycling bin. Be sure to remove any sellotape from your boxes.

    Plastic bottles

    Yes

    All plastic bottles including shampoo, those festive fizzy drinks and milk can be recycled with the lids and labels left on. Just be sure to empty any liquid, rinse them and squash them down before putting the lid back on.
