Answer for Recycling on the Underground

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Approximately 30% of the waste collected on the Underground network (stations and trains) is recycled. LU is working with the Infracos to consider options, where space allows, for commuter recycling facilities at surface Tube stations and is also talking to the Boroughs about provision outside of Tube stations.
