Fulham strikes recycling gold

Residents in Hammersmith and Fulham seemed to have struck gold - by making the most of recyclable materials generated by householders living on estates in the Borough. North Fulham New Deal for Communities (NDC), Hammersmith & Fulham Council and H&F Homes have teamed up to pilot this project that seeks to improve recycling services and make it easy for residents to recycle their rubbish. The project is funded by NDC and will test a range of recycling options on the Clem Attlee estate, a mix of high and low rise blocks. Although it costs money to collect recyclable materials, many of the products collected are valuable to local authorities striving to meet increasingly tough targets. Hammersmith & Fulham waste recycling manager Dave Newman said: Our goal must be to capture as much recycling from residents living on estates as we do from street-level properties. To do this, recycling needs to be made as easy as it is to throw away rubbish. NDC neighbourhood services theme manager Sarah Blair added: The project will improve the quality of life for local people by increasing access to services for local residents and involving local people in estate improvement projects. For more information on the project, contact John Twitchen on 020 8256 0023 or email Image: Clem Atlee estate
