Bexley leading the way on recycling

I’m pleased to say that, once again, Bexley council is leading the way on recycling with a community recycling incentive scheme, part funded by the London Waste and Recycling Board (LWaRB).

Bexley is the top of the pops when it comes to recycling rates (with Bromley not far behind) and it is clear that the council has no intention of resting on their laurels.  Working at a community level makes it easier to reward people living in flats and Bexley’s new scheme is being launched in 2,000 flats in East Thamesmead.

Recycling from flats isn’t easy but as this report from the London Assembly shows it shouldn’t be used as an excuse for councils not to bother.  LWaRB has funded £5million of test projects like this across London so we should be seeing more innovative projects like this in the near future.
