Bin calendars are going paperless and are available online, in a drive to modernise Council processes and provide a more personalised service.
As a result, a reduction of at least 55,000 sheets of paper will be achieved each year in the Borough. Residents can sign up to emailed weekly reminders of their collection dates as well as view and save them online. You can also print a copy off. We will be supporting those with no online access at all.
We are engaging with local community groups and locations as well as Town and Parish Councils to help communicate the change. There are no date changes until the Christmas holidays, so we encourage residents to choose their appropriate option before this first change in bin collection dates.
You can now access your collection dates for 2019/20 and also sign up to receive bin collection reminders. The simple options are detailed below and will replace the printed calendars:
Create a MyEastleigh online account to view your collection dates as well as sign up to receive emailed bin reminders the afternoon before your expected collection. You can check your collection dates 24/7, wherever you are and be reminded without the need for a calendar.
Your MyEastleigh account also gives you access to check your Council Tax and Housing Benefit accounts, view planning applications near to you, sign up to Your Weekly Borough News email and more...
Option two allows you to view and save your collection dates as well as print them off, but you cannot set up bin reminders. You will be able to print off collection dates as far as the end of November 2020.
If a resident has no online access, then they can contact our Customer Service Centre who will be able to discuss options with you depending on your circumstances.
