Camden 'recycles on the go'

Commuters using Euston station, one of Londons busiest train stations, are being encouraged to recycle on the go and get rid of papers, plastic bottles and cans responsibly in Camden Councils new public recycling bins.

The council will be installing 12 new dual recycling and litter bins at the station from September 1 in a new six month pilot. If the trial proves successful the council aims to roll out the scheme across the borough. The council aims to make it easier for people to recycle and stop litter being thrown on the streets.

Camden Council head of street environment Tom McMahon said: Camden is one of the capitals cleanest boroughs and we want to keep it that way. We hope that commuters using Euston station set an example to the rest of London by recycling what they can using this station and help us make this new trial a success.

The sheer number of commuters to the station attracts companies wanting to give out free literature, which in turn creates a lot of extra litter. Under new controls anyone wanting to hand out free literature in Euston station has to apply to the council for a permit.
