Together, H&F recycled 9,500 tonnes of recycling in 2022

We thank all the Hammersmith & Fulham households who recycled last year.

In 2022, we collected a whopping 9,500 tonnes of recycling. That’s the equivalent of the weight of 61 Boeing 747 airplanes. Most importantly, it has saved taxpayers almost £1.2m on disposal fees.

Cllr Wesley Harcourt, H&F Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Ecology, said: “Thank you to every H&F household who made an effort to recycle in 2022 – it really helps make a difference. We’re working hard to make our borough clean and green, but we can’t do it without you. Please join us as we pledge more climate action and less waste in 2023.”

Visit the H&F website for more details on how to recycle at home, including collection days and contact details.

Kind to planet and wallet

Recycling can help conserve natural resources, protect ecosystems and wildlife, and save taxpayers money. But only when done right.

Not everything belongs in the dry mixed recycling bin. See what items you can and which ones you can’t recycle. If in doubt, leave it out!

Even better than recycling is to avoid waste altogether.

- Visit Hammersmith’s new Library of Things at Livat shopping mall to borrow useful household items rather than buy new.
