Hounslow's new rubbish service has been launched with claims it could see more than 70 per cent of household waste recycled.
Town hall chiefs boast the new service, that will be fully up and running early next year, will be one of the most comprehensive recycling services in the capital.
Cllr Barbara Reid, Hounslow Council's lead member for environment, said: "The council is committed to making Hounslow a cleaner and greener place to live. That's why we are taking steps to increase the borough's recycling rates and reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill."
The new and improved service will be delivered by SITA UK.
Further information on the new waste and recycling services will be sent to every household in the borough in the New Year.
The council says its four key improvements to the waste and recycling services include:
- From this month, all residents will have their garden waste collected throughout the winter without having to book in advance.
- More people than ever before will have their rubbish, recycling and garden waste collected on the same day.
- Food waste collections will start for the first time in February 2009.
- Household plastics will be collected for recycling from February 2009.
