Nice Save

Leave a comment

Many people don’t realise that along with the obvious environmental benefits of recycling there are also significant cost savings associated with putting materials in your recycling bin as opposed to your refuse bin. It currently costs Lewisham roughly 1.5 times more to dispose of waste than to recycle your waste.

This adds up to £250,000 over the course of a year, Recycle for London are running the “nice save” campaign to highlight this. As part of the campaign we’ve put posters up on the side of our recycling trucks and along Lewisham High Street, in addition to this London wide radio adverts have been running to encourage people to recycle as much as they can.

To find out more about the campaign you can visit Recycle for London and to see what you can recycle in Lewisham visit our Recycle page.
