Bins and recycling

The millions of people who live on and visit our canals each year generate quite a bit of waste, which we have to dispose of responsibly. In 2014/15 we spent £740,000 collecting the waste from dog bins and collecting litter.

We collect general waste and recycling at different frequencies, depending on the location. Over the course of a year we’ll empty around 19,000 bins and 2,000 skips.

We’re dedicated to recycling more and we aim to increase the amount of recycling points available on our waterways with our Green Plan.
