Residents who live in flats with blue Eurobins can now put these additional items into their blue Eurobins.
Councillor Syed Ghani, Cabinet Member for Public Realm, said, “Following a successful pilot last year, I’m delighted to have rolled out an extended recycling scheme for all Barking and Dagenham households.
“We have always been committed to recycling as much as we can, and our extended recycling offer now makes it easier for all residents to recycle more at home.
“I know lots of residents wanted to be able to recycle bottles, books and more plastic items and now they can do so in their brown bins, freeing up more space in their grey bins for general waste items.”
Residents can find more information on what they can recycle here.
