Christmas can mean extra rubbish, for example wrapping paper can't be recycled. Therefore, extra sacks will only be collected for the FIRST COLLECTION after Christmas.

For more information about bin collections see www.basingstoke.gov.uk/bins or call 01256 844844.

Top tips to help you recycle more this Christmas

  • Leave large flattened cardboard next to your recycling bin for collection.
  • Recycle all your tins, cans and plastic bottles. Please place all other plastics in your grey bin.
  • We can't recycle your wrapping paper but please put all your other paper and card in your green bin.
  • Take extra glass to a glass recycling bank or save for next collection. Please do not overfill your glass box.
