Refuse & Recycling Collections
New Forest District Council are expecting severe service disruption to refuse & recycling collections over the next few days or weeks.
In anticipation of this, we recommend taking the following measures:
1. Minimise your waste, eat any leftovers
2. Appropriately wrap and freeze, until refuse collection day, any food waste which cannot be composted in your own garden
3. Wash and dry food packaging before throwing in the bin
This will minimise unpleasant odours and attraction of vermin.
Coronavirus: Storing waste advice
Please see below for public advice on storing waste - would be grateful for any sharing of this information you are able to do (it is on our facebook and twitter also) :
Advice on how to store your rubbish for anyone with confirmed or possible Coronavirus or if you are self-isolating (COVID-19):
- Double bag all waste that contains tissues
- Do not put it out for collection for at least 72 hours
Double bag: Personal waste (such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloth) should be stored separately to other waste, put in a rubbish bag and then put into a second bag / black sack. This should be tied and kept separate from other waste in the room/s in which you are self-isolating.
Keep aside for at least 72 hours: Do not put it out for collection for at least 3 days. As an example, if you have filled/tied a bag on a Monday and your collection is due on a Thursday, that bag can be put out for collection on Thursday morning. However, if you have filled/tied a bag on a Monday and your collection is due on a Wednesday, you would need to hold onto that bag until your collection day the following week.
Other household waste can be disposed of as normal.
This advice is based on guidance form central government, designed to prevent transmission of the virus.

Denny Lodge covers an area of over 27 square miles, making it the second largest civil parish by area in England.
It is located on the eastern side of the New Forest, Hampshire. Its boundaries lie entirely within the New Forest National Park.
Most of its terrain comprises ‘open forest’ – heathland, marshes and bogs as well as deciduous and pine forests.
Despite the Parish’s large geographical area, its population is low (c. 350), making it one of the least densely populated regions in southern England.
The economy of the area reflects its rural nature. Businesses within the parish consist of farms, horticultural and equestrian concerns, as well as businesses related to tourism.
