Recycling and gardening waste collections are resuming across Redbridge after a break of several weeks caused by the coronavirus lockdown.
Fortnightly green bag garden waste collections are resuming today, Monday 11 May, while separate recycling collections will begin again next week on Monday 18 May.
Both stopped because there were not enough staff available to make the collections while following social distancing. Regular refuse collections were also brought forward, meaning residents had to place their rubbish at the edge of their property by 5am (incidentally supporting the local fox population).
Redbridge Council has also announced that the Chigwell Road tip has reopened; the area is bracing itself for long queues. Deposits are restricted to domestic waste only.
