New waste collection system pays dividends in Brent

The new collection changes which introduced weekly organic and food waste collections and alternative fortnightly dry recyclables and landfill waste has seen a reduction in annual landfilled waste of 14562 tonnes.

The annual saving, to the Council is £1,576,337. This will be even more as year on year, the Government is increasing landfill tax, which is what we have to pay to bury waste under mother earth. SO THE LESS WE DO THIS THE BETTER!

This puts us in a position of making savings without having to cut more services as Brent is disproportionately impacted by the Coalition’s cuts to local Councils.

We are further looking ways to divert waste and reduce landfill charges to Brent Council this year. We hope this will improve our savings further!
