NFDC glass collection box

New Forest District Council (NFDC) will suspend services as a mark of respect and in line with national protocols on Monday 19 September for the State Funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Recycling and rubbish collections will not take place on Monday 19 September.

Residents are being advised that if their collection was due on this day, to keep waste and recycling in a safe place until the next scheduled collection day, and the extra will be collected.

NFDC said in an email to residents and on their social media that services would be affected on Monday “In line with national protocols, as well as to allow our staff the time to pay their respects.”

Glass bottles and jars can also be taken to community recycling banks in the district:

For garden waste collections, the advice is to use black or clear bags for any extra garden waste, which will be collected in addition to usual garden waste sacks on the next scheduled garden waste collection.
