December 25 moves to December 27; December 26 moves to December 27 for refuse, December 28 for recycling, December 27 moves to December 28 for refuse, December 31 for recycling; December 28 stays the same for refuse, to January 2 for recycling; December 31, no change; January 1 moves to January 2; January 2 moves to January 3; January 3 stays the same for refuse, January 4 for recycling and January 4, no change.

Normal refuse and recycling collections resume on January 7.

Councillor Leslie Keeble, in charge of streetscene matters, said: ‘I’m pleased that the residents of Fareham will maintain their household waste collection over the Christmas period. The collection days will be convenient for households, and like previous years, I would encourage people to recycle as much as possible throughout this time to reduce the overall amount of waste.’

Fareham Borough Council will be collecting real Christmas trees for recycling – put the tree out with your garden waste when the service resumes. There will be no need to chop it up, just leave it beside the garden waste sack.

The maximum trunk diameter is 10cm.
