London Borough of Merton’s response

The Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, has announced today that:
“All boroughs must introduce recycling collections from homes by September 2004.”

London Borough of Merton welcomes this announcement:

Alison Broom, Merton Council’s Head of Street Management, said ‘We welcome the news that the Mayor is pushing for all London Borough’s to run recycle collections from homes by September 2004 – but we will be beating his target!

‘We have been offering a borough-wide paper and card home collection service since 1999, but are currently extending a Recycle from Home Scheme to include glass, plastic and tin. The new Recycle from Home Scheme will reach all houses in Merton by March 2004.’
