We've collected all the seasonal information you'll need this Christmas and New Year.

Disposing of your real Christmas tree 

  • Recycle your Christmas tree - take it to Portsmouth Recycling Centre at Port Solent, open 9-4 every day except bank holidays
  • Green Waste Club members can cut their tree into pieces that fit in their brown bin, for inclusion with their fortnightly collection
  • Alternatively, trees less than six feet high (1.8m) will be collected with normal household waste collection for two weeks after Christmas, but these trees will be incinerated, not recycled

Stay well this winter - health advice and pharmacy opening times

Bin collections

  • Christmas and New Year rubbish and recycling collections

Please put your rubbish and recycling out by 7am.  If you miss your collection, keep your waste on your property until your next collection, or take it to Port Solent recycling centre. Check your collection day here.
