Smarter bins for hackbridge

Objectives of the trial:

In addition to the general benefits of introducing smart bins across the borough, we are looking for this trial in Hackbridge to:

  • Enable us to learn more about how bins in the Hackbridge area are being used.

  • Target resources to where they are needed most.

  • Reduce street clutter and improve the street scene in Hackbridge.

  • Ensure litter bins do not overflow, improving street cleanliness.

  • Reduce vehicle movements in the area, cutting pollution and lowering our carbon emissions.

Monitoring and review:

We will be closely monitoring how the new bins are working during the trial period. Updates with key performance measures will be published on the Council’s website.
