Complex recycling in Ealing
The London Borough of Ealing has just changed its rubbish collection arrangements to increase the amount recycled, see LinkExternal link. The hope is that householders sort their waste. Three different lorries come round the same day to collect it, and the streets are cleaned the next day. In this photo of our rubbish, from the left: reusable pink bags for garden waste - we happened to have a lot of woody and prickly prunings this week which wouldn't go in our compost bin; sealed green bucket for kitchen waste like fish and bones which we can't compost; cardboard; green box for paper, glass, tins, foil, and we could put fabric and shoes and phone directories in it; another green box for plastic except toys, furniture; and finally that little black bag for rubbish that can't be recycled. Didn't we do well! We separately collect cardboard drink cartons, metal, paint, batteries, ink cartridges, and some others and take them occasionally to the local tip - oops, mustn't call it the tip - local recycling centre.
