Waste and Recycling

Waste acceptance at Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs)

Hampshire's Household Waste Recycling Centres accept a wide range of materials for recycling.. All sites accept a standard range of materials, while some of the larger sites can accept additional items such as hazardous household waste materials. Please click on the icons below for more information on what can be accepted.

Different containers and areas are provided onsite to ensure as much as possible is separated for recycling, but if you are unsure what to do with a waste item then please do ask site staff.

Please note that the restriction on soil, rubble and DIY waste applies to: soil and rubble, wood and timber, plasterboard, and scrap metal. Restrictions also apply on the deposit of paint, and hazardous household waste.

If you need to dispose of larger amounts, or materials not listed here, you may like to make use of our list of alternative disposal options. There are a few material types that cannot be accepted at our sites, including car tyres, explosives, and petrol.
