Was wondering if anyone had any advice about recycling in the Bermondsey Street area. I used to have the old green box and orange bag system when i lived further south.
At the moment i'm keeping all the stuff to recycle and then carrying what i can to a mates house who has orange bag/green box collection.
Does anyone know the nearest place to recycle or if there's been any talk of the council collecting recycling from homes. I looked on the Southwalk Council website and the nearest places i could find were all next to Waterloo.
It breaks my heart to see huge bins outside flats crammed full of cans, bottles and other stuff that could be recycled.
If you live in a managed block Southwark will be keen to install recycling bins for paper, glass and cans. They did this effectively and quickly when our Managing Agents at the Alaska Buildings took it up with them. There used to be a doorstep recycling system when we lived on Bermondsey Square.

There are a number of recycling facilities which are supposed to exist a heck of a lot closer than that ! Have you looked on the map on Southwark's website ?
That said, I often find these centres are either full or mysteriously disappear from time to time. Email Southwark Council (firstname.lastname@example.org) - they are usually very good at letting you know what is around your area. As Mark says, they will sometimes organise recycling in managed blocks of flats as well.

sounds daft, but i'm giving all my green stuff to a work collegue with two guinea pigs and a tortoise. Keeps me feeling smugly green, my bin emptier and her pets fat and happy. They won't do onions, but neither will wormeries...is it worth asking around. you roffice?.. no idea about other recylable plastic.
