WASTE and recycling collection days will change for some households in Hillingdon from Monday, October 31.

The borough is making changes to its collection routes for efficiency and to help reduce carbon emissions.

Free collections for general waste, dry mixed recycling, food and garden waste remain weekly and collected on the same day as each other.

Residents will be sent a letter informing them of their new collection day or if their day will stay the same. Everyone is advised to put out waste and recycling by 6am.

Flats with communal bins will be unaffected.
