Our performance

Keep up to date with New Forest District Council's recycling rate and waste strategy.

Recycle your paper, plastic bottles and cans How are we doing?

Thanks to your efforts, we recycled or composted 30% of our household rubbish in 2015/16. This includes everything that was recycled in the clear sacks, at the recycling centre and in the garden waste scheme.

We could recycle even more by making sure that everything that can be recycled is being put in the clear sacks or taken to the recycling centre.

Improvements to your recycling service

We are always looking for new ways to increase the amount that is being recycled in the New Forest.

We introduced household glass collections between summer 2013 and spring 2014, making it easier for residents to recycle their glass bottles and jars.

A lot of our work focuses on giving people the right information about what they can recycle from home. We run campaigns each year that may focus on a specific material or town and work with local schools during the year.

You can help by recycling and composting as much as you can - it all helps!
