SITA UK is responsible for the collection of all rubbish and recycling in the London Borough of Hounslow, whether you live in a house or a flat. They also provide the bulky waste collection service Tidy Town, collections of recycling from the recycling sites across the borough and clinical waste collections, for residents who are referred for this service. We continue to manage our reuse and recycling centre - Space Waye.
We offer one of the most comprehensive recycling services in London, allowing residents who live in houses and flats to recycle a wide range of items.
Residents are now recycling more than 36% of their waste, and this means that the amount of rubbish that we throw into landfill is dropping. This is great news for the environment, helping to reduce landscape destruction and loss of natural habitats and wildlife. It also helps to reduce emissions of methane, which is global warming gas with an impact 23 times stronger than carbon dioxide! Reducing and recycling your waste also helps conserve natural resources like oil, and save energy. So do your bit by recycling as much as possible.and reducing your waste.

To help you use your recycling containers correctly, please watch our helpful online video - Guide to Recycling from your House.
You can also ask for a larger 240 litre bin if you are recycling all that you can and are still struggling to fit everything in to your wheelie bin.
Your application will be assessed by the recycling team.
