Answered By: 
The Mayor

Yes, Recycle for London is in the process of applying for funding and putting in place plans to draw attention to several key issues that are particularly relevant over the Christmas period.

In conjunction with national activity and in partnership with WRAP, the campaign will promote minimisation of food waste, in particular offering practical advice to plan food shopping and use freezers for more efficient food storage. The campaign will also raise awareness about the opportunities for recycling small electrical items.

The campaign will also support boroughs in providing specific information to residents including changes to recycling collection dates and instructions for recycling Christmas trees.
