Five good causes have been awarded £7,500 in donations because of the Hackney’s recycling record.
Tenants and homeowners, who are part of the council’s recycling rewards scheme, have racked up green points for recycling more – and as a result cash will be given to charities.
Members of the Green Points scheme have voted for their favourite charities in the borough to get the biggest slice of the £7,500 donation.
St Joseph’s Hospice in Mare Street will get £3,500, Hackney Migrant Centre will get £2,000 and the Hackney Pirates were awarded £1,000.
Meanwhile St Mary’s Secret Garden and Hackney Showroom got £500 each.
