Changes to Basingstoke and Deane Council’s bin collections

Rubbish, recycling and garden waste collections in Basingstoke and Deane are set to change as part of a move to improve bin collection routes to make them more efficient and environmentally friendly.

Working with Serco, Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council is changing waste, recycling and garden waste collections to reduce the distances bin trucks are travelling, revise the routes to incorporate new homes in the area and simplify collections for some residents so their glass and recycling is collected on the same day.

The changes will be introduced from Monday 22 July and will mean that over half of Basingstoke and Deane's homes will see a change to the day or week their waste and recycling is collected. Nearly all of the garden waste customers across the borough will be affected. Those residents remaining on the same collection day may have a change to their collection time, therefore bins need to be put out by 7am.

The waste bins will continue to be collected weekly and recycling and glass collections will remain a fortnightly service. Those people signed up to the garden waste service will continue to have their bins and bags collected every two weeks.

The council will send a leaflet to all Basingstoke and Deane residents in early July to advise of any changes to their existing waste and recycling service. Garden waste customers will receive a separate leaflet.
Information on the new collections will also be available on the council’s website http://track.vuelio.uk.com/z.z?l=aHR0cDovL3d3dy5iYXNpbmdzdG9rZS5nb3YudWsvYmluLWNoYW5nZXM%3d&r=12248500803&d=9020909&p=1&t=h&h=524b784969fdf51f5034350b4b48d33c  from Monday 1 July. Updates will also be provided on its social media channels.

Dog fouling
Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council are keen to encourage residents to report information about anyone not picking up after their dogs so they can investigate further. This can be done by calling 01256 844844 or emailing customer.service@basingstoke.gov.uk with as much information as possible, including the times of day it happens, a description of the dog and the owner. This can be done anonymously if preferred..

Recycling sites

Following discussions between Hampshire County Council and West Berkshire Council we are now able to update you on the outcome. 

Transitional resident permits will now be issued to all residents who live further than 10 miles away from a Hampshire Household Waste and Recycling Centre (HWRC). Those residents in North Hampshire who live within 10 miles of either Basingstoke or Andover HWRCs do not qualify, and will therefore not be sent a permit.
The permit will only allow for access to Newtown Road HWRC (and not the Padworth facility); Hampshire residents will not be allowed to use restricted vehicles and asbestos disposal is not permitted at Newtown Road. The nearest licenced facilities for asbestos are either Andover or Basingstoke HWRCs.
If you qualify for a permit, it will be sent to your home address from 20 December 2016 and will be available to use immediately.
Please see West Berkshire Council’s website for information on opening times, materials accepted and restrictions.http://info.westberks.gov.uk/CHttpHandler.ashx?id=42296&p=0

What is a Parish Council?
The Council is the lowest tier of local government but is at the grassroots of the community. The Council normally consists of 11 voluntary Councillors (currently there are two vacancies) who are elected for a four year term of office to serve and administer for the needs of the residents of Baughurst Parish.  In the event of a mid-term vacancy occurring, a new member is elected or co-opted until the next full election. The Parish Councillors determine and set policy to cater for the social, cultural, welfare and environmental needs of our residents and employ a part time Clerk to the Council to implement policy decisions.

All Councillors adhere to the Parish Council Code of Conduct and complete a Register of Interests. The Councillors have formed into sub-councils to concentrate on in-depth concerns in the local community. The committees are listed here:
General Purposes
Playing Fields and Open Spaces

Interested in becoming a Parish Councillor?
Why not attend as a member of the public for a few meetings, and if this encourages you to get involved, perhaps speak with an existing Councillor or the Parish Council Clerk who can provide more information about Parish Council elections and mid-term vacancies?

When does the Parish Council meet?
The Parish Council generally meets on the 4th Thursday in each month.  The meetings are held either in the Heath End Village Hall or Wolverton Village Hall, with the exception of August and December.  Primarily most meetings are held in Heath End  hall, except the May, June and July meetings, where the meetings are generally held at Wolverton Village Hall.  The meetings are open to the public and all are welcome to listen to the proceedings,  Visiting public are not entitled to participate in the business of the meeting without the invitation of the Chairman. Two short Public Question slots are always scheduled in the agenda.
