New team to tour Harrow to help increase recycling
A new recycling team are working their way round the borough to help people dispose of their waste.
Marcus Afrifa and Jason Rawal from Harrow Borough Council’s recycling team will be targeting parts of the borough with low levels of recycling.
The pair will be offering people tips on how to recycle more of their waste to help the council cut the amount it spends sending rubbish to landfill..
Leader of the council Councillor Susan Hall said: "This is all about offering helpful advice – not handing out lectures or telling people off for having their bin lid open an inch wide.
“Marcus and Jason are offering useful and practical tips on how to recycle more. That is good for a cleaner borough and fairer on residents who otherwise end up subsidising landfill taxes.”
A third operative will be joining the team and is part of an £800,000 investment from the council in cleaning the streets.
