No fortnightly rubbish collection for Hillingdon residents?

Posted on

A recent article in the Ruislip/Northwood Gazette states that Hillingdon Council has no plans to introduce fortnightly collections, wheelie bins or fines for not recycling properly. It quotes Sandra Jenkins, LBH cabinet member for environment, as follows: “I would like to reassure our residents that in Hillingdon we put our residents first, and will work with them to increase how much we recycle. The council already has an excellent household recycling rate and this is all down to our residents’ participation levels.” Hillingdon has apparently exceeded the Government’s target for 2006/7 by achieving a 34% waste recycling rate and is now working towards reaching 40% by 2010.
