Waste and Recycling Survey

Closed 6 Jan 2019

Opened 17 Oct 2018


Between October 2018 and January 2019, Redbridge Council is conducting a survey to gather the views and opinions of our residents around waste, recycling and the local street scene. We will be using your input alongside other research to develop a future Waste Strategy for the Borough.

At the moment Redbridge is one of the lowest recycling performers in London. In addition, we sadly produce a very high level of general waste. In 2016/17 we collected 673.9 kilograms of black sack rubbish from every household - this is the third highest amount for any local authority in England. The amount of rubbish we are collecting is rising higher than the rate of population growth in the Borough and we need to reduce this wastage to lessen the environmental impact and to improve the local street scene.

Our motivations lie in making the borough as clean and safe as possible for residents and workers.

This survey will take around 10-15 minutes to complete.

We are hoping for the new Waste Strategy to go to Cabinet in January 2019.
