Flat block trial to help borough to boost recycling

A database has been set up by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to help it boost recycling in blocks of flats.

The data will enable council officers to identify which systems are delivering the best results and highlight those areas in need of improvement.

With 83% of households in the London borough comprised of flats, this means it is harder to service them with recycling facilities.

This is because there are often very different waste management systems in place in individual blocks.

Although, the borough is different to many in having 80% of its flats on private estates rather than council-owned.

Recycle Western Riverside project manager Dee Moloney said: "The estates inventory has been really successful. Focusing on the existing refuse and recycling systems, features of the blocks, communications methods and management and porter involvement, the campaign has covered approximately 140 estates in just one month.

"The borough has been presented with a summary report and comprehensive database for each one and we now hope to work with them to implement the recommended improvements."
