Bin day is changing for Gosport residents
Almost all residents in Gosport will have a new bin collection day next month. The change will happen during the week starting Monday 5 June.
The change is needed because of a rise in the number of homes in the borough, and therefore an increase in the amount of rubbish and recycling that need collecting.
Gosport Borough Council and its contractor, Urbaser, are bringing in another bin lorry and another collection round to manage this increase. This has meant a re-organisation of collection days.
To check their new collection day, residents can enter their postcode.
The change will improve the efficiency of the service. It will also reduce CO2 emissions.
Collections will continue to be fortnightly as usual, alternating between ordinary rubbish and recycling, carrying on in the same sequence as now.
To check if a week is a rubbish collection week or a recycling one, residents can see the refuse and recycling calendar .
Garden waste collections are not affected by the change.
Cllr Peter Chegwyn, Leader of the Council, said: "We're sorry that a lot of people will need to get used to a new collection day, but this reorganisation was needed for an efficient service.
"We're very grateful to residents for their understanding as we introduce this change."
Residents are being informed about their new collection day by tags hung on their bins, and via social media.
