Rubbish and recycling
Residents of our estates have recently Complained about dumped furniture and bulky items, Mattresses, etc, are being left near the Estate Bins! Please Note there is a Area next to the Recycling Bins/Communal Waste Bins, were Bulky Waste such as furniture goes, Please do not leave your rubbish on a car park space, Please do not move the bins. If you have Bulky Waste see below to have it collected by Hackney Homes. Thank You.
Most household waste is recyclable and can be put in the mixed recycling bins. Please put all your waste and recycling inside the bins. Do not dump anything next to the bins or anywhere else on your estate or street. Dumped waste is dangerous, against the law, attracts rats and ruins the area for everyone.
