A special range of bins has been ordered to sit on the streets around the Olympic Park.
Waltham Forest Council has ordered 100 Olympic Dual Bins to keep the borough clean and tidy during this summer’s Games.
The bins are manufactured and supplied by Midlands-based company Amberol.
They are made from recyclable polythene with a fire retardant inner liner, and have a waste and recycling capacity of 180 litres.
Two stubber plates and ash collectors help smokers dispose of cigarette ends.
Paul Tickner, senior contracts monitoring officer at Waltham Forest Council, said: “The Olympic recycling bins are an important part of our environmental imitative.”
