Why recycle?

Recycling is very important. It can help to keep your area clean, prevents foxes and vermin from getting into your rubbish, and helps the council save money which can then be used on improving your area.

Not only does it reduce the amount of waste being sent to landfill, recycling preserves the environment and ensures that valuable resources are turned into new products so we can live sustainably. Waste being sent to landfill has negative and long lasting effects on the environment.

Everyone living in Ealing can recycle. Help keep your community, borough and planet clean and preserve the environment for the future.
