Fears that the London bombings could have a permanent affect on recycling have been allayed with all the city's recycling bins set to return.
Following the July terrorist attacks, Westminster, Camden and Lambeth councils were all asked to remove recycling bins as a security measure. But now, just over four months later, all affected areas are set to begin using recycling facilities again.
A Camden Council spokesman said: "All the bins will be replaced next week. They have all been refurbished and officers have also looked at the best places to situate them. Some are being moved to more effective locations."
Westminster council also removed 67 recycling bins at 31 underground and rail stations. These included Edgware Road, one of four locations attacked by the bombers.
A Westminster city council spokesman said: "We took the bins from more centralised areas, mainly from outside key tube stations. But all bins have now been replaced and the recycling network is once again fully operational."
Lambeth's eight affected recycling bins near Waterloo Station have also been returned.
