More recycling for Islington

Our recycling and black bags weren’t picked up on Friday, because of the snow.

But according to the Council website, they should be collected later today. The advice is that the recycling and refuse collections are running two days in arrears, with both refuse and recycling crews working over the weekend: all scheduled collections will be completed this week.

They also warn that further disruptions may occur next week if the snowfall on Monday is heavy.

Meanwhile once things are back to normal, there are two new recycling services coming from the council.

All Islington libraries now have facilities to recycle batteries up to 9v. Neat: two of my interests are recycling and libraries, and now I’ll be able to combine them!

And the food waste collection is being extended to restaurants.
It’s frustrating that Government targets for local councils are all about recycling domestic waste, when businesses produce lots of recyclable rubbish too. So I hope the trial of the scheme is a success and more food businesses take part.
