Government grant brings bin changes for people living in flats and estates in Enfield
People living in flats and estates will soon notice changes to their bin collections thanks to a £2.46million Government grant.
The money, given to Enfield Borough Council, means everyone in the borough will have their organic waste - including food - collected weekly.
Communal bins will be installed outside flats and estates to encourage people to recycle.
Enfield won the money after the council submitted a bit for the Government’s weekly collection support scheme, which aims to help areas improve refuse and recycling services.
Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Environment, Councillor Chris Bond, said: "It’s fantastic news that we are able to expand our food waste service thanks in part to this government grant, we already provide an excellent service to residents and this scheme will enable us to increase our recycling rates still further.”
