Household recycling and waste collections

Image of "Hounslow Recycles logo"

The council recycles over 31 percent of its waste but we have a target of 50 percent recycling by 2019. Fortnightly black wheelie bin collections help encourage more recycling, making over £1.3 million savings to protect other vital services in the borough.

On your collection day

  • Place your container(s) out for collection by 7am.
  • Place it on the front boundary of your property, in a place clearly visible and accessible from (but not on) the pavement
  • Only put out the correct materials in each container. If you place the wrong items in the wrong box, we will not collect your recycling
