Redbridge Council has launched a public consultation to inform the development of a waste strategy for the Borough.
The survey asks a series of questions about issues such as waste, recycling and fly tipping.
According to the Council, the local authority collected 673.9 kilograms of black sack rubbish from every household in the Borough in 2016/2017, the third highest amount for any local authority in England.
In 2017/2018 Redbridge Council collected more than 110,000 tonnes of waste and sent approximately 26,000 tonnes for recycling, composting or reuse, according to data released by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA).
The research revealed that 15 out of 33 London boroughs recycled a smaller percentage of household waste in 2017/2018 than in 2016/2017. London is currently bottom of the table for recycling compared to the rest of the country.
“The amount of rubbish we are collecting is rising higher than the rate of population growth in the Borough and we need to reduce this wastage to lessen the environmental impact and improve the local street scene,” say the Council.
“Our motivations lie in making the Borough as clean and safe as possible for residents and workers.”
