Alternate weekly collections spring 2016

On Tuesday 16 June 2015 the council's cabinet agreed proposals to introduce wheelie bins and switch to alternate weekly refuse and recycling collections.

The new simpler service is expected to be introduced in late spring 2016 and will help the council reach its target of recycling 50% of household waste by 2018.

50% by 2020

50% is a national target that Ealing must reach by 2020. The borough is embarking on a drive to boost our recycling rate and reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.

There are lots of small things you can do to help us reach 50% by 2020.
