Boris calls for Xmas recycling effort

London mayor Boris Johnson has called on Londoners to maximise the recycling of Christmas waste to save the capital cash.

Recycle for London, backed by the Mayor, estimates that over the two weeks of Christmas and New Year, London will generate an extra 29,000 tonnes of household rubbish.

Johnson said: ‘If we all recycle the discarded trappings of Christmas we can save our councils a whopping £2.7m, which could instead be spent wisely elsewhere.

“This makes recycling an even more attractive option, so if you are pondering a worthy New Year’s resolution, make it to help us become a less wasteful city.”

Recycle for London is running its ‘Nice Save’ campaign encouraging Londoners to recycle rather than bin their rubbish.
