NEW routes and collection dates will be delivered to residents regarding changes to waste collection.

Working with Serco, Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and Hart District Council are changing waste, recycling and garden waste collections to reduce the distances bin lorries are travelling, revise the routes to incorporate new homes in the area, and simplify collections for some residents so their glass and recycling is collected on the same day.

The changes will be introduced from Monday, 22 July and will mean that over half of the homes in the borough, and a small percentage in Hart, will see a change to the day or week their waste and recycling is collected.

The two councils will send a leaflet to all Basingstoke and Deane residents and affected Hart residents to advise of any changes to their existing waste and recycling service.

Garden waste customers will receive a separate leaflet.

Information on the new collections for each area is also now available to look up on the councils’ websites at: and
