To mark Recycle Week Redbridge Council is running a series of free online workshops to help people get clever with their recycling.

The council carries out five million recycling collections in the borough and recycled 13,000 tonnes of residents’ waste - the equivalent of 1,028 double decker buses.

The workshops will help convert people into avid recyclers to help save money and time, and create a cleaner and greener borough.
