Things you need to know
Essential information about waste collections, council tax, public transport, parking and more
In Eastleigh you have a black household waste bin, a green recycling bin, a black glass box and a food waste bin with kitchen caddy.
Your residual waste and recycling are collected on alternate weeks, food waste is collected every week alongside these. Glass is collected fortnightly on the same day as your green recycling bin.
Paper, card, tins, cans and plastic bottles should be put in your green recycling bin. Batteries can also be recycled if you place them in a clear plastic bag on top of your glass box.
You can also subscribe to our garden waste collection service, which is collected fortnightly, saving you a trip to the tip with your garden cuttings.
You can find out what dates your bins are collected and print a calendar through our website and sign up for email reminders to put your bin out through your myEastleigh account.

Bulky waste collections
If you're having a clear out, take a look at our bulky waste collection service. If you choose a different company to dispose of your waste, make sure they are licensed. Unlicensed operators could fly-tip your waste, leaving you open to a fine or even prosecution.
