Rubbish and Recycling

Tower Hamlets operate a recycling scheme on your estates. At the present time they are able to recycle paper, newspaper, magazines, junk mail, telephone directories, glass bottles and jars, tins, clothes and shoes, and many kinds of plastic. Household waste for recycling should be placed in a “Pink Recycling Bag”, which should be kept indoors and brought out on collection days.

For more information on local recycling services, visit the Tower Hamlets Council website

If you have any large or bulky items, the Council’s Streetline service will arrange for collection. Each household in Tower Hamlets is entitled to two free collections per year with up to five items taken away per collection by the Council’s Clean Team. For further information check the ‘Recycling and Waste’ page of Tower Hamlets website. To arrange for a collection please telephone the Streetline service at Tower Hamlets Council on 020 7364 5004.

Better still, if you have furniture which is still in good condition, call Homestore on 020 8519 6264 who will collect it for free and recycle it.
