New wheelie bin rubbish collection
In February 2020, we carried out a pilot collection of rubbish using wheelie bins from 7,000 Redbridge households. The pilot was a success and results showed that 75% of pilot participants noticed less rubbish spilt around their property on collection day helping to improve the surrounding environment. Up to 67% of respondents found it easier to use wheelie bins than rubbish sacks. There was also a 13% reduction in household rubbish and an average of 4.2% increase in recycling in some areas.
