We're getting even greener!

The decision by councillors on Hackney Council to go for compulsory recycling is clearly proving to be a success. Tonnage from the green box service in De Beauvoir's has increased by 52% from March 07 to October 07 which is really excellent!

Hackney overall has just seen its highest ever recycling rate at 22.82% for October 2007.

The Green Party in Camden are now using Labour run Hackney as an example of good practice.

Recycling ultimately depends on there being a market for the materials collected, so making a conscious effort to seek out and buy green goods helps to close the recycling loop.

Hackney Council have put some tips for a greener Christmas on the council website.
