Answer for London Overground Stations (2)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

London Overground manages recyclable and general waste separately, and this separation is maintained from the platform bins to the waste management centre.

Historically three separate litter waste streams have been used (paper, plastic and general waste).  London Overground Rail Operations Ltd is currently reviewing this arrangement to simplify its waste management system. This will reduce the number of separate streams from three to two (mixed recycling and general waste), which will make it easier for customers to use. New signage is currently being installed at stations to reflect this change.
