Recycling banks

Find out where you can recycle items that we don’t collect from your home, and how to report an overflowing recycling bank.

Find a recycling bank

At our on-street recycling banks you can recycle glass bottles & jars, plastics & tins and paper but not cardboard. Some banks also have textile recycling facilities.

A wider variety of items can be recycled at Jenkins Lane Re-use and Recycling Centre. Items that can be recycled are listed on the East London Waste Authority - Accepted Materials website.

If you can't recycle your items at home, you can find your closest on street recycling bank by visiting the London Recycles Website. This website lists recycling banks provided by Newham and also by third parties like shops and supermarkets.

Report an overflowing recycling bank

We regularly empty our recycling banks, but if you notice that a bank is full or overflowing please report it online.
