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.

Information about your collections

We collect rubbish in one vehicle and recycling and glass in separate sections of another vehicle.

Timing of collections

  • Collections usually start at 7am in most roads and are usually finished by mid-afternoon. 
  • 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, collections start earlier in these roads:
    - Fleet Road, Farnborough - 6.30am
    - Victoria Road, Farnborough - 6am
    - Ash Road, Aldershot - 6.30am
    - Lower Farnham Road, Aldershot - 6am
    - North Lane, Aldershot - 6.15am

Please make sure your bins and glass containers are ready for collection, before these times.

For the safety of our crews, in very hot weather we may start collections in all roads from 6am. This is to make sure that where possible, the staff have completed their round before the hottest part of the day.
