Recycling and waste
Recycling in Tower Hamlets is quick and easy. It’s about making a simple choice between putting items in your bin or recycling them.
Even better than recycling is reducing the amount of waste we produce in the first place, which can also save you lots of money.
Tower Hamlets provides a weekly refuse and recycling collection to residents. Figures released for April 2017 to March 2018 show that a staggering 10.2 million collections took place over that period. View the latest refuse and recycling collection figures.
