Now you can recycle even more
Hackney Council's recycling service has just been improved even further - from this month, you can now recycle Tetra Pak cartons and plastic tubs (for example, yogurt pots and ice cream tubs).
All householders - on estates, and in street properties - will be able to recycle these items. Recycling rates in Hackney have improved dramatically in recent years – we now recycle 24% of all our waste – up from just 2% in 2002. We were one of the first councils to introduce compulsory recycling, and every street level property has a Green box and Blue bin collection weekly. All estates and high rise flats have a nearby recycling bank.
Hackney Council is committed to constantly improving recycling services to make it as easy as possible for residents to play their part in reducing waste. Find out more here.
