A lack of space in homes was found to be the biggest challenge to staying on top of recycling

Recycle for London has launched a new campaign to help Londoners tackle the lack of recycling bins and containers in their homes.

Ran by Resource London, ‘One bin is rubbish- sort it out’ will highlight new research which found a lack of space in homes as the biggest challenge to staying on top of recycling.

Conducted with 2,000 residents, the survey found almost one third of respondents would recycle more if they had more than one bin at home.

Antony, Buchan, head of programme at Resource London, said: “Managing recycling at home is something we all have to do every day, so it’s not surprising that the majority of London residents regularly experience clutter and mess around the bins in their home.”

The campaign, which runs until mid-March 2018, includes a number of "bin hacks" such as re-using cardboard wine carriers to store glass bottles before recycling and storing a bucket under the sink to put can, glass and plastic after rinsing.
