Just think of the size of London. We are a species of avid consumption and whilst many of us are getting better at rubbish removal in London, there is still a long way to go in terms of maximizing the opportunities for recycling.
People think, oh, recycling, that’s about having lots of different bins and boxes and then they decide that they have neither the time or the room to be bothered. The thing is, it doesn’t have to be complicated and the key is to start small. Don’t expect to become an expert at recycling over night.
When it comes to what you can recycle, common sense helps, for example, would you expect to recycle a polystyrene tray that was soiled with blood and the residue of the meat it contained, no. What about the solvent bottle with a skull and crossbones on, again no. There is lots of information online about recycling and wherever you live in London, your local council will be happy to tell you about recycling in your borough and how it fits in with recycling in the capital overall.
Room by Room
Consider each room in your home and think about what you can recycle. The kitchen is the obvious one: tins, bottles, clean food containers, packaging of all kinds (except polystyrene). What about the bathroom? Think of all those shower gel and shampoo bottles, deodorant cans etc. Toothpaste tubes aren’t recycleable, although the oblong cardboard boxes they come in are.
Recycling for Business
There are always lots of ways businesses can contribute to recycling, such as using recycled paper on your printers. Be a little more selective with what you do with your waste, put things that really can’t be recycled into sacks and look for a company who will undertake rubbish removal in London.
The Mayor’s Biochemical Programme
If you run a restaurant or take away, up into the Mayor of London’s biochemical programme. The aim is to turn your used cooking oil, greater and fats into biochemical fuel with which to power the city’s fleet of buses.
