Wandsworth Council has the 6th worst household recycling rate in the country. Only 22% of household waste is recycled.

We demand that the Council works to increase the local recycling rate by:

(1) piloting a weekly separate food waste collection scheme in accordance with the national government's aim that this be introduced. Food waste can account for over a third of household waste and is one of the main contaminants in recycling.

(2) making it easier for local people to recycle, for example ensuring adequate numbers of recycling bins for communal blocks and recycling bins in all of the Council's public buildings.

(3) engaging with the community to promote awareness about waste to boost recycling and waste reduction.

PLEASE NOTE this petition was delivered to Wandsworth Council at the Council Meeting on 17 July 2019. For more information about the progress of the petition please contact Wandsworth Labour's Environment Spokesperson, Cllr Paula Walker on Cllr.P.Walker@wandsworth.gov.uk
