From Monday 12 January, collections are back to normal.

Real Christmas trees will be collected for recycling during January. Place your Christmas tree out for collection on your normal garden waste collection day (this can be found through the collection day finder). Only Christmas trees will be collected, all decorations, pots and stands need to be removed before they are placed out for collection. If you live in a flat, you can also arrange to have your real Christmas tree collected. Contact us to arrange a collection, by emailing recycling@hounslow.gov.uk or calling the call centre. You will be given a collection day based on the garden waste collections in the areas nearest to you. You will need to let us know where the tree will be left for collection, for instance next to a bin store, and trees should be placed out for 7am on the collection day.

Wheelie bins

Residents in some parts of the borough have been using wheelie bins for their household rubbish for a number of months.  We are now extending this to other parts of the borough

Rubbish, waste and recycling

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.

Follow the links on the left to find out more about recycling, waste reduction and responsibly disposing of your waste within the borough.
