The organisation, charged with developing the capitals recycling and waste management, said the release of the 2005/06 waste arising and recycling rates for English councils by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) before Christmas showed London in a positive light.
It said two London authorities achieved the greatest reduction in waste arisings generated per head per year. Westminster council achieved a reduction of 1.4% and the Western Riverside Waste Authority, 4.3%.
Chief Executive Daniel Silverstone said: Reducing the amount of waste arisings is a key indicator to assess performance. London boroughs are improving their recycling collection systems and raising awareness to make it easy for residents to recycle their waste and reduce their rubbish.
London Remade added that Defras release of results comparing regional areas provided an inaccurate view of the capitals performance and that it should instead be compared with more similar, metropolitan councils. These would share more characteristics such as population density and housing demographics.
Using this comparison, London is one of the best recycling performers, achieving a 20.6% recycling rate, which is above the average recycling rate of 19.88% across the 36 metropolitan authorities.
London Remades views echo those of the London Council aired last week, as it defended the performance of Londons local authorities and called for the Mayor to drop his quest for a single waste authority.
