Residents across the borough are fuming at changes made to how we recycle. Pink bags have to be collected from an Idea Store, and in a bizarre turn of events you also have to show ID.
Local spokesperson Elaine Bagshaw said: “We already have one of the lowest recycling rates in London and this is only going to make it worse. We have to work together to make recycling as easy as possible for people. This is bad for the planet and bad for the borough.”
Councillor Andrew Cregan said: “Our recycling scheme is complete rubbish. There was no need for these changes to be made and we’ve no idea why the Labour Council are pursuing such a ridiculous scheme. It’s time the Council listened to local people and made recycling as easy as possible.”
