Bexley Council has taken another step to making rubbish bins a thing of the past by allowing residents to recycle even more items.

Household plastic packaging and cartons will be recycled if placed in the maroon recycling box or silver for flats.

These materials are in addition to the plastic bottles, cans and clean foil that can already be recycled using these containers.

Councillor Gareth Bacon, Bexley’s cabinet member for environment and public realm, said: “I am delighted that even more recycling services are being rolled out to Bexley residents in their homes.

“We were recently named the top recycling borough in London for the twelfth time in 13 years, thanks to the efforts of our residents.

“I am sure that by now being able to recycle many more plastics and cartons, our residents will ensure we continue to lead the way.

“Producing less waste saves us all money in the long run.”

Residents can order free additional containers at www.bexley.gov.uk/online or by phoning 02083037777.
