Cllr Guy Lambert, Cabinet Member for Highways, Recycling and Trading Companies at Hounslow Council, said:

“We aim to minimise any disruption in service due to the summer bank holiday, by ensuring all waste and recycling collections are caught up a day later including Saturday 5 September.

“I am very grateful to our residents who have supported Recycle 360 during the recent hot weather spell, by presenting collections from 6am, it allowed crews to complete most of their manual work without being exposed to soaring midday temperatures.

“Please be assured when you recycle in the borough, you are making a positive contribution to the environment, as collected materials are managed responsibly by the Council and our partners, so please do keep recycling all you can.”
