Yes, but you will need to bring it in off the pavement after collection.
The three standard bin bag allowance was designed to be the same as the capacity of a wheeled bin. If you are struggling with the amount of waste you are generating we can carry out an assessment dependent on your situation.
There are two types of stickers that you could have seen. If it is from a flat fronted house/flat, then it is likely to be a large household/HMO that has been given extra capacity due to their situation following an assessment. It may also have been extra capacity that has been purchased from the council.
You can either take the extra bags to the recycling centre at Port Solent or you can purchase up to 12 extra waste stickers per year from the Council. There is a charge of £24 for 12 stickers.
To buy these additional stickers, please contact 023 9284 1105. You can pay by debit or credit card.
Please place a sticker on each extra bag that you place out. Do not place it on bags in the wheeled bin or as part of your three bag allowance. The sticker must be clearly visible to the crew member to ensure it is collected.
No, the bags must only contain normal household waste. They cannot contain recyclables, glass, garden waste, building waste, liquids or other non-household waste. If they do they will not be collected and no refund will be given.
No it is still the same day, though the collection time may change, which is why we say your bags must be out by 7am for collection.
Yes, but we will only take three bags a week.
Excess waste will be recorded by the crews and waste officers will investigate and take appropriate action.
If you already have a communal bin for your waste there will be no change. If you are in a smaller block you may be issued with a communal bin.
Items should be clean and loose - please do not put anything other than this in the bin as this increases the costs of disposal.
You can take glass and clothes to the bring banks throughout the city.
Take green waste to the Household Waste and Recycling Centre at Port Solent (see our website for details), compost it or join the Green Waste Club firstname.lastname@example.org.
If they can fit into a standard carrier bag then place them on the lid of your recycling bin or box on your recycling collection day.
All the recycling we collect goes to be sorted and the sorting centre is designed to take plastic bottles, paper, card, aerosols and tins/cans and cannot sort any other items. The council is working with other local authorities to look at ways to improve and increase recycling.
The largest cost is on disposal of rubbish whilst recycling generates income. Therefore the new scheme should reduce costs.
If you are a childminder you are in effect running a business from home and would have to pay for a separate trade waste collection. You would not be entitled to a larger waste bin or bag allowance to accommodate this waste.
