Recycling must be a genuine process
I wish to endorse wholeheartedly Alexis Rowell s comments on commingling and recycling (H&H letters October 2). Commingling and recycling are two very different concepts, and it is a great shame that many Camden residents believe they are active recyclers
I wish to endorse wholeheartedly Alexis Rowell's comments on commingling and recycling (H&H letters October 2).
Commingling and recycling are two very different concepts, and it is a great shame that many Camden residents believe they are active recyclers, when so little of their recycle material is meaningfully recycled.
It is not realistic to expect residents to carry their recycle waste to on-street separated recycle bins. Hence, until commingling ends, much of our waste will continue to be shipped abroad, or end up as hardcore.
If it costs more to do this properly, then so be it. There is little to commend the present system other than cost.
You may also want to watch:
I realise that there are contracts involved here, and that it is unrealistic to simply end commingling overnight. But it would be brilliant if Camden could commit to ending commingling at the earliest date that contracts allow.
Then the effort that so many of us go to maximise our re-cycling will be justified.
