After the final cork has been popped and the last sandwich eaten, the council reminds residents to dispose of their party waste in an environmentally friendly way.

Glass bottles, plastic bottles and cardboard boxes can all be recycled from the doorstep. These items can also be taken to one of the three Re-use and Recycling Centres located in Acton, Southall and Greenford.

Leftover food can be recycled using the food waste bin or in composting bins. There are handy tips and recipes for party food and to how to avoid food waste, available on the Love Food Hate Waste website.

Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, cabinet member for Transport and Environment, said: “There will be many who want to join in the celebrations with a Royal Wedding party.  It will create memories that will last a lifetime, but there’s no need to have piles of waste that will last even longer.  The vast majority of this rubbish can be recycled or re-used without any extra effort. Recycling rates in the borough are still growing but we cannot be complacent. Each and every resident needs to play their part and take full advantage of all the recycling services available to them so that our recycling rates keep moving in the right direction.”
