Blackwater Recycling and local links

Blackwater is a small town in Hampshire which is administered by Hart Borough Council and lies in the GU17 postcode. Blackwater is one of the smaller towns that makes up the Blackwater Valley Conurtation which also includes the towns of Aldershot, Farnborough, Farnham, Frimley and Yateley as well as a number of villages including Ash and Cove. Blackwater 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 Blackwater recycling guide for the local area. We’ve also given you some useful links and have 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 Blackwater self storage prices here.
