Bin collections

Check your rubbish and recycling collection days in Aldershot and Farnborough or report a missed bin.

Coronavirus - changes to your bin collections

We changed our bin collection service at short notice in March because of the coronavirus pandemic. This meant that we moved to fortnightly collections for both your rubbish and your recycling.

Because of the risk of further infection spikes, we are continuing with the current arrangements for now. 

Recycling and rubbish survey

The unexpected change in our collection arrangements has given us the chance to think about our future recycling and rubbish collections, including how we could introduce food waste collections.

To help understand more, we've put together a survey and would like to hear your views. Find out more on our Recycling and rubbish consultation page.

The survey is open until 14 August.

Collection times

Our bin crews may be collecting your rubbish or recycling at different times than you are used to.

Please put out your bins and glass containers at the edge of your property (nearest point to the road) before 7am on your collection day, or the night before.

For safety reasons, some collections start earlier.

Help with your rubbish bin collections

Many of you won't be used to fortnightly rubbish collections, but our wheelie bins are designed to store household rubbish safely for several weeks.

If you have a smaller, 140-litre bin, we will collect up to three bags of excess rubbish every fortnight.

We cannot collect any excess rubbish, if you already have a larger bin.

Keeping your bin clean

There are a number of things you can do to manage your rubbish and keep your bin clean.

Find out more on our Managing the rubbish in your wheelie bin page.

Help with your recycling collections

For some collections, we are collecting glass separately to your blue bin, so please leave your glass out if we don't collect it at the same time.

Please leave any excess recycling in a clear plastic bag next to your blue bin.

Request extra recycling sacks

Please fill in our request recycling sacks form if you would like us to deliver you some sacks.

For more on blue bin recycling, see our What to put in your blue recycling bin and Glass recycling pages.


Fly-tipping is an offence and ruins the area for everyone. If you are caught, you could face a heavy fine. See our Fly-tipping page for more details

Rubbish bins

We issue 140-litre rubbish bins as standard and all new and replacement bins are this size. If you have a large family or exceptional circumstances, we may be able to give you a larger rubbish bin. Please contact us using the details on this page.

Recycling bins or glass recycling boxes

There are three different sizes of recycling bin, so if you regularly have extra recycling and feel that your bin is not big enough, you can order a larger one or an extra one for free. You can also order an extra glass recycling box from us.
