Waste and Recycling

Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs)

Hampshire County Council provides 24 HWRCs across the County for householders to recycle or dispose of their bulky household and garden waste. They are operated on the Council's behalf by Hopkins Recycling Ltd.


Hampshire's HWRCs recycle an average of more than 60% of the waste brought into them!

Planning a spring clearout?

HWRCs in Hampshire are open daily throughout spring and summer. They accept a wide range of bulky household and garden items for recycling, including unwanted furniture and clothing.

Sites are open from 9am to 6pm, except Efford which closes at 4.30pm.
