Croydon one of the best boroughs in London for recycling
28/11/2013 13:59:00


The Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs has released the official recycling performance league table for 2012/13.

When the current Conservative administration took control of the Council in 2006, Croydon was ranked 29th out of the 33 London boroughs for its recycling performance. Seven years later, it’s in 6th place.

How has that happened? First, because the Council has introduced kerbside collection of paper, cardboard, glass, tins, cans, fabrics, garden waste and food waste for recycling as well as investing in its three Re-use & Recycling Centres and the various mini-recycling centres around the borough. And second, because so many of you have made use of these facilities and thereby done your bit to help the environment.

There is no room for complacency - we need to do better still (and, as the table below shows, if we do we could soon be 2nd or 3rd in the league table) - but this is one of many ways in which my Conservative colleagues at the Town Hall have changed our town for the better.

1. Bexley 54%

2. Bromley 49%

3.= Kingston upon Thames & Richmond upon Thames 46%

5. Harrow 45%

6. Croydon 44%
