Hackney reaches new recycling high

We're recycling more than ever in Hackney - the figures from January show that over 27% of rubbish in the borough was collected for recycling.

This shows the commitment local residents have to recycling. Since the end of last year, you can now recycle plastic packaging and cartons in green box collections.

However, there's still more to do - over 60% of household waste can be recycled so we need to do even more to get all residents in Hackney recycling.

We're always after suggestions of how to improve recycling services. Another thing we're often asked is about whether the Council provides lids for green boxes. The Council doesn't - but you can get a net lid for free which helps to stop recycling blowing away, and you can also be reassured that even if paper and card gets wet outside in your green box, it can still be recycled.

More information on recycling can be found here.
