Redbridge residents will now be able to recycle empty aerosol cans and other new items after an expansion of the borough’s recycling scheme.
From next Monday, September 27, residents can include three new items as part of their weekly recycling collection.
These are: Plastic pots, tubs and trays, including yoghurt pots and margarine tubs; empty aerosol cans; and clean aluminium foil and foil trays.
The announcement comes ahead of Recycle Week, which runs September 20 to 26.
Cabinet member for environment and civic pride, Cllr Jo Blackman, said: “The expansion of our recyclable items is another important step towards driving down waste to create a cleaner and greener borough.
