Last November the Islington Gazette reported that the Council was going to introduce compulsory recycling. Islington Green Party were delighted that the they were minimising rubbish sent to landfill but felt that a carrot not stick approach would be more successful - see my letter to the Gazette.
It looks as if the Council may have listened. I arrived home this afternoon to find a motivational message attached to my food waste recycling box, thanking me for recycling and encouraging me to continue. Praise where praise is due, well done Islington.
