Hampshire County Council introduced online tip bookings earlier this month, with Portsmouth bookings for the Port Solent tip going live last week.

Drivers have been instructed to book their visits to the tip in advance, in a bid to cut down on the traffic queues that have been building up since they reopened.

From now on, residents will be turned away if they have not booked either online or over the phone, with a set number of appointments available every day.

Here is when Portsmouth supermarkets are open

Hampshire County Council has expanded its appointment service, but appointments are still limited.

Where are the tips?

The Paulsgrove Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) run by Portsmouth City Council is at Port Solent. To get there, drive along Port Way until you reach the roundabout by the Odeon car park, then take the first exit.

Of Hampshire County Council's tips, Gosport’s is off Grange Road; drivers should turn off at the entrance to Alver Valley, then take the first left.

Fareham’s recycling centre is in Smeaton Close, Segensworth – at the eastern end of Barnes Wallis Road, just before the roundabout.

For Havant residents, their nearest recycling centre is in Harts Farm Way, to the south of the A27.

The tip in Waterlooville is on the way to Denmead; turn off Hambledon Road at Darnel Road, by the retirement complex, then follow the road down.

Hayling Island tip is in Fishery Lane, Bishop’s Waltham’s is in Claylands Road and Segensworth is off Barnes Wallis Road.

How do I book?

Booking for the tips must be done in advance. Anyone who does not book an appointment will be turned away.

Hampshire residents can book online by going to customer.bookingbug.com/?client=hantsrecyclingcentres#/services.

Alternatively, you can call 02380 179 949 to book your appointment over the phone.

If you live in Portsmouth, you can book a tip appointment at portsmouth.gov.uk/ext/coronavirus-covid-19/portsmouth-household-waste-and-recycling-centre-coronavirus-information.

When is the tip open?

The tips in both Portsmouth and Hampshire are open from 9am to 6pm, seven days a week.

What can I take with me to the tip?

Most waste materials are being accepted by tips at the moment.

Currently, however, textiles and chargeable waste, such as soil, rubble and asbestos, are not permitted.
