Taking recycling to parks in Camden

The London Borough of Camden has teamed up with not-for-profit organisation Rewind Recycling to introduce recycling bins designed specifically for parks and green spaces.

Park visitors can recycle glass, paper and cans at convenient points in three parks in the north London borough.

The bins are part of a new scheme set up by Rewind Recycling called Green Space Waste Action. It was developed to encourage more parks and green spaces to include recycling bins, as most of the waste generated at these spots was not recycled.

The council and Rewind Recycling aim to reduce landfilled waste from these three sites by 65% and, if successful, Camden Council hopes to install recycling facilities in parks across the borough.

Councillor John Thane, executive member for environment (pictured), said: Camden is making excellent progress in the amount of waste we recycle and with these innovative facilities it is even easier.

Rewind Recycling operations manager Kerry Page (pictured), said: The collaboration with Camden Council makes it possible for the first time to demonstrate the potential for recycling in urban green spaces. It will enable local people to get involved with an environmental project that impacts on the future of their surroundings.
