Have your say on rubbish and recycling in Hackney

Hackney Council wants the views and opinions of residents to help plan the way we deal with rubbish and recycling over the next few years.

From this week (19 October) until 18 December, local people will be able to tell us what they think about the various waste and recycling services available in the borough. These include waste minimisation such as composting, real nappies, junk mail; recycling for houses and estates; also food waste, garden waste, bulky waste and rubbish collections.

Councillor Alan Laing, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, said: “It is important that we get the views of our residents to help us shape rubbish and recycling services in the future. I urge everyone to take part in the consultation so that your opinions can be taken into account.”

As part of the consultation the Council also aims to get feedback on current satisfaction levels with our services; identify opportunities for improvement; and encourage further participation to minimise waste in Hackney.
