The Parish Council supports the recycling activities of Test Valley Borough Council and Hampshire County Council, who collect and dispose of waste and recyclable material.

The parish supports recycling activities in two main ways:

  • using the “twin bin” waste collection scheme at each property
  • using the parish recycling centre

Additional recycling activities are supported  at other waste collection points throughout the borough.

The government has set a target for local authorities to recycle at least 25% of waste by the end of 2000.  By the end of October 2000 Test Valley Borough Council had recycled 24% of waste and was well on the way to achieving the target.

Collection and disposal

Waste and recyclable material is collected from domestic properties weekly, and from the parish recycling centre by Test Valley Borough Council as required – typically weekly, although seasonal variations are taken into account.

The collected material is processed by Hampshire County Council, who separate it and resell whatever is possible.

Twin bin refuse and recycling

Household waste is collected using a “twin-bin” approach:

  • one bin for general waste and
  • one bin for recyclable waster – paper, plastic, and metal

In addition there is a green garden waste collection servicewhich is available for an additional fee of £32.50 per annum.

The general waste is collected each week, and the recyclable waste is collected approximately every altyernate week – according to a published schedule.

Parish recycling centre

The recycling centre in the parish collects glass (separated into white, green, and brown glass) and clothes/shoes
