Compostable packaging (such as Vegware) is not accepted in garden waste. Please dispose of compostable packaging in the general waste bin. Waste collected from households in Hackney goes to Edmonton’s Energy From Waste plant to generate energy.
You must not put Japanese knotweed in with your garden waste or general rubbish. The government has guidance on treating and disposing of invasive plants. If you have Japanese knotweed or other invasive plants on your land you should contact a specialist contractor to remove and dispose of it properly.
You can order an extra brown bin or a re-usable bag. You can also bring waste to a household waste disposal site.
Garden waste from households in Hackney is sent to an in-vessel composting plant in south east England to be turned into compost.
