Your recyclable waste

Your recyclable waste

Please continue to use your kerbside recycling service as usual. Follow the normal rules about keeping items clean, dry and loose. As a reminder, this includes newspapers, cardboard packaging (A3 size and below. Please break larger cardboard packing down into smaller pieces), plastic bottles, food tins, drinks cans and aerosols.

For larger recyclable items such as bulky cardboard boxes, wood and metal, please try to minimise this waste in the first place and where this isn’t possible store these items in a secure place to avoid any risk of them catching fire.

A range of household waste items can also be reused for craft projects in schools or in the home. Alternatively, you could consider refillable options for a range of items such as cleaning products or pasta. For more information on reuse please visit Smart Living, Hampshire County Council’s waste prevention and lifestyle initiative.
