Sutton Council gets £14,000 to promote recycling
Make recycling your New Year's resolution, that is the message coming from councillors as a campaign kicks off this week.
Sutton Council has launched a joint campaign with Recycle for London to increase the level of recycling in the borough and save taxpayers' money.
Councillor Colin Hall, deputy leader of Sutton Council said: "While recycling in the borough is at a good level we still feel there is more work to do and I’d urge everyone to think about what they are throwing away this year.
"Through campaigns like this we want to make people aware of what they can recycle and what they can’t. We want people to realise that what they put in to their bins, while of no use to them, can be turned into something beneficial elsewhere."
The campaign, funded by a £14,000 grant from Recycle for London, aims to raise awareness of what can be recycled in green wheeled bins and what can be taken to the Kimpton Park Way Reuse and Recycling Centre.
The borough recycles 38 per cent of waste. Visit www.sutton.gov.uk/wasteandrecycling for details on recycling facilities.
