One container is issued per household in Hampton. Families that find they consistently have a need for a second container can call 311 and ask for one. Public Works will monitor usage and may collect and redeploy the container if it is not used consistently or correctly.
If your recycling collection is scheduled on a holiday, it will be collected on the Wednesday of that week. All garbage, bulk trash, limbs, yard waste, and tires will also be collected on the Wednesday of that week. The holiday schedule is published in the newspaper and is available to you through the 3-1-1 Customer Call Center.
The list of items you can put in your household recycling bin is: Metal food and beverage cans, aluminum cans, pie pans, foil; all colors of glass bottles and jars; all kinds of cardboard (single-ply, corrugated, waxed, clean pizza boxes, egg cartons); paper, mail, newspapers & inserts, computer & office paper, magazines, catalogs, brown paper bags and phone books; all numbered plastic food, beverage and detergent containers; caps and lids (may be attached or unattached, all contents must be emptied). Please flatten cardboard to save space in the container.
Hampton’s curbside recycling program does not accept any plastic bags for recycling including newspaper plastic bags. However, most area grocery stores have collection bins that accept grocery store style plastic bags for recycling. We recommend you dispose of any plastic bags you cannot drop-off for recycling in your regular garbage.
We do not accept food remains of any kind, needles or syringes, styrofoam and plastic bags, paint cans, aerosol cans, coat hangers, light bulbs, window glass, lids from cans or jars, butter tubs or other "oily" containers, baby diapers, microwave food trays, containers marked "poison," and metal cans lined with plastic. There are processing problems with these materials and markets do not exist for recycling some of these items.
