New recycle bins across the borough
From the council’s Green Matters page
The Council is installing 80 new on-the-go recycling bins across the borough.The bins have two compartments one for recycling and one for litter allowing passers-by to recycle their newspapers plastic bottles drinks cans glass bottles and cartons.The first bins were rolled out as part of a trial in Hackney Central Stoke Newington and Shoreditch last Spring. It was a big success with over 40 tonnes of material recycled in them last year.The bins proved a big hit with the public with almost all of residents asked saying they wanted to see more of them around Hackney.For the first time the bins are also being installed in parks. They can already be found in the newly refurbished Hoxton Square and will soon be available in other parks.New bins are also being placed in Stoke Newington High Street Lower Clapton Road Hackney Road and the south end of Kingsland Road.
I spotted one of these myself on Mare Street at the weekend. The sticker lists pretty much every kind of recyclable on it including tetrapaks. Good work Hackney!”
