Islington: Wheelie Bins for recycling
Islington recycling will soon announce more plastic items that can be included in the weekly collection - such as plastic containers, Tetrapack, drinks carton and plastic bags.
Where resident should put all the stuff has also been considered - the sensible news is wheelie bins for recycling are being introduced. They are not being rolled out around the borough but an opt in arrangement is being organised as a trial.
One can only say thank heavens for that. Already in the property where I live there are 9 green boxes and most weeks this is not enough. Then with the wind, the boxes at time are a nightmare to keep closed and recycling rubbish is blown about sometimes in the street.
Sounding out opinions of adjacent neighbours and other local residents in the area most I've spoken to welcome the idea as long as they retrieve the old garden boxes and not create another problem with redundant green boxes and nowhere to keep them. Even the route collectors say it would make their collection much easier - there is apparently a high rate of recycling in this area.
Well I've included this property on the list. As a multi-occupancy property one wheelie bin won't be enough so I'm hoping they will give us two for the trials - least that's on the cards for now.
Waiting for more official information about the scheme so watch this space...
