Recycling collection service
Recycling in Basingstoke and Deane is something everyone can do. We provide a fortnightly kerbside collection for all residents using a green wheelie bin. If you live in a flat you will have a larger, shared recycling bin.
It's important that only the items which can be recycled are put into your recycling bin. Dealing with the wrong material is expensive and can sometimes lead to good material being sent for incineration. For information on what can and can't be put in your green recycling bin, take a look our webpage What can I put in my recycling bag or bin?.
If you need a larger green recycling bin - you can request one by completing the form - request a larger green bin.
Your recycling should be placed clean, dry and loose into your bin and not in a plastic carrier bag or black sack. This prevents bagged recycling being mistaken for waste and sent for incineration.
Remember to put your bin out for collection by 7am on your collection day. If you are unsure of your recycling bin collection date, you can check when are my bins collected?
If your bin has been missed, you can report a missed collection.
If you don't have a green recycling bin, or need a new one, you can order a replacement bin online and or call 01256 844844 to order one.
