Bin collection update – 30 July 2021
Due to staffing levels at Norse South East (NSE) some rubbish, recycling and glass collections in the district are running behind schedule.
- Rubbish - Rowlands Castle - collections will be completed on Friday 30 and Saturday 31 July.
- Recycling - some areas of Liss, Hillbrow, Rake, Sheet, Broadway Park, Buriton, Chalton, Clanfield, Ramsdean, Stroud and Weston may experience delays. These collections will be collected on Friday 30 July.
- Glass (home collections) - some areas of Liss, Hillbrow, Rake, Sheet, Horndean and Clanfield may experience delays. These collections will be completed on Saturday 31 July.
- Bulk glass (bottle banks) – frequency of service currently reduced - please do not leave your bottles at collection sites if you find they are full when you arrive, as this can be hazardous to members of the public and crews. Norse South East (NSE) is working to find a resolution to this issue.
Please continue to leave your bins out and crews will collect them soon as possible, with an extra service scheduled for Saturday 31 July, to catch-up.
You only need to report a missed bin if you notice that your neighbour's bin has been collected, but yours hasn't.
Norse South East is also addressing challenges surrounding staff shortages – impacted by a national shortage of qualified drivers – recruiting more drivers and training others so that they have back-ups in place to cover shifts.
Whilst recruitment is underway, the decision to prioritise the collection of household rubbish, recycling and garden waste was made and as a result of this, some collections to glass recycling sites are not being collected as frequently as we would have liked.
East Hampshire District Council is continuing to closely monitor the situation.
