All Hampshire bin collection times for Platinum Jubilee weekend

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is being celebrated with a four-day weekend, starting on Thursday (June 2). To commemorate Queen Elizabeth II’s 70 years on the throne, councils across Hampshire are rolling out the Union Flags and dishing out the cream teas.

But alongside the celebrations comes the more practical side of extra holiday dates. Changes to work schedules can mean that opening times of shops vary, local facilities may close, and bin collections can be altered.

With burst balloons, beer bottles and paper plates from street parties likely to make an appearance at many household this week, Hampshire residents may find their bins fuller than usual.

This makes it the worst time for bin schedules to change. However, most councils across the county have said they will not be altering their system.

HampshireLive has contacted councils across Hampshire to ask if there will be any significant differences to bin collections this week.
