Bromley Tops Recycling Rates Again
Recent figures show that Bromley is once again one of the best boroughs in London for recycling, with a rate of 50% in 2018/19.
Starting in September, the Council also launched a new service allowing residents to recycle batteries, small electrical items and clothes from their doorstep for the very first time. This should not only help our environment, but also save landfill costs for tax payers allowing funds to be reinvested in to other vital public services.
The new service has so far been extremely popular - in the first week of the new service over 1.5 tonnes of these extra items were collected and sent for recycling. Councillors have also successfully lobbied for a new paper bank in the High Street.
