Bradshaw praises Brent's recycling

Brent’s “dramatic improvement in recycling” was praised by environment minister Ben Bradshaw during a visit to the borough’s new Abbey Road re-use and recycling centre last week.

The London borough, which has received recent government grants of £800,000 to introduce organic waste recycling to 60,000 households and £100,000 to raise awareness of recycling in the community, has seen its recycling rate rise from 6% to 20% in the space of three years.

Brent councillor Ann John said: “We know there is more work to be done, particularly in changing the mindset of some people in the community towards recycling, but we are confident that our actions will result in even better recycling rates in the coming months and years.”
