Aldershot Recycling and local links

Aldershot is a large town in Hampshire which is administered by Rushmoor Borough Council. It includes the GU11 and GU12 postcodes. Aldershot is one of the larger towns that makes up the Blackwater Valley Conurbation which also includes the towns of Badshot Lea, Blackwater, Deepcut, Farnborough, Farnham, Frimley, Sandhurst and Yately as well as a number of local villages. Aldershot recycling is administered by Hampshire County Council.

If you’re looking to create space, then perhaps it’s best to start by throwing out some of the things you don’t need. That’s why we’ve put together this Aldershot recycling guide for the local area. We’ve also listed some local companies which you might find useful. We’ve tried to recommend local companies with good ratings over nationwide companies, but please do your research before booking the services of anyone listed on this page.

For those things you want to keep but really don’t have the space for, then the team at Self Storage Hampshire is here to help you. You can check out our cheap Aldershot self storage prices here.
