Why we have a one bin rule and what it means
We want you to recycle as much as possible, so we only allow one wheelie bin per household for rubbish. We will not collect any extra bags of rubbish left beside bins.
Use these simple tips to make sure your rubbish fits into your wheelie bin:
- Reduce the amount of waste you produce – the East London Waste Authority website has tips on how you can save yourself money by reducing waste
- Recycle what you can
- Book special collections for large or bulky items or green and garden waste
- Use the Jenkins Lane Re-use and Recycling Centre to get rid of furniture, electrical appliances such as kettles and many other items. Alternatively, visit https://www.recyclenow.com/ to find local recycling points.
