Slim your bin

Slim your binIn Barking and Dagenham, we throw out more rubbish than anywhere else in London.

In fact, on average, every household creates one tonne of rubbish a year– that’s 40% more than some neighbouring boroughs.

This is why we’ve launched Slim Your Bin, a campaign to encourage all Barking and Dagenham residents to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Our target is for each household to produce no more than a single bin full of non-recyclable rubbish each week.
