Recycling collection

Every year Redbridge residents produce around 100, 000 tonnes of waste. That’s almost 1 tonne per household. By taking simple steps to reduce, reuse and recycle your waste you can help save money and make a difference to your environment.

Presenting your recycling boxes for collection

Your recycling must be in the blue and black recycling boxes that we provide.  Boxes should be left just within the boundary of your property by 7am on the day of collection.
