We have to recycle to save finite resources. There are therefor EU requirements for meeting percentages.
None of Hounslows recycling leaves the UK and it is all processed as close to London as possible to save transport emissions.
Plastics go to Closed Loop in Dagenham for reprocessing for use in the UK. Paper is processed and back in use in 7 days. Food waste is processed through anaerobic digestion for good quality compost and the gases converted to electricity for supplying the National Grid.
All households have to be supplied with recycling facilities by law and Hounslows is so comprehensive that there is very little to have to take anywhere apart from building and decorating materials and why should anyone have to leave the engine running.
If food is put in food waste bins there is no attack from vermin.
It is likely that with fortnightly collections Ealings bins will be bigger than Hounslows ie 240 litre.
I'm told that there are over 40 questions to be answered regarding Ealings bin plans but it's on hold until after the election!
We will learn more in due course about plans which aren't going to happen until 2016.
