Business recycling

This week is Recycle Week, on the credit-crunchy theme of Let’s Waste Less.

Islington Council has more information online. There are lots of recycling schemes out there, but getting the information to people is crucial.

While were sheltering from the storm in the pub on Monday I had a good chat with the licensee. She has piles of bottles to recycle, and was regretting the limited opportunities for glass recycling from the main trade waste contractors. It doesn’t help that the inevitable government targets for councils are all about domestic recycling, plus business rates go off to the Treasury and don’t cover local trade waste services. Even small firms have to find and fund their own recycling. One option is to use a specialist contractor such as Paper Round.

Meanwhile in the Angel Business Improvement District, there’s a new scheme to collect paper for recycling, starting with firms based in St John Street, Pentonville Road, Penton Street and White Lion Street.
