Recycling banks

There are lots of ways to recycle in Redbridge and most residents can recycle from home.

On-street recycling banks

We also have on-street recycling facilities or recycling banks around the borough for use by residents out and about, living in locations where a kerbside or flats service isn't available. 

Items accepted:

  • paper
  • glass bottles
  • plastic bottles
  • cans and tins.

Find your nearest recycling point and what you can take there.
