Hampshire - Recycling


Supporting Hampshire to recycling more

The awareness and importance of recycling waste has increased and people are keen to contribute. Many people take the trouble to recycle, either via the kerbside collection system, Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) or via the 1,600 bank sites in Hampshire.

The vast majority of households in Hampshire have access to kerbside collection of recyclable materials. These include newspapers and magazines, cardboard, junk mail, food, drinks and aerosol cans and plastic bottles. These are taken to a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) to be separated, sorted and sent for reprocessing.

The network of bank sites caters for other materials including clothes, books and glass bottles and jars. The 26 Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) throughout Hampshire take bulky materials.
