Brent Council and Recycling

I see that Brent recycling performance is now about 37%, which is somewhat down from where it was a few years ago.  Improving even a few percent would save the Council a lot of money and also reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  The same report comments that the new Veolia contract is designed first and foremost to cut residual waste (now sent for electricity generation rather than landfill), but doesn't actually seem to have any figures on how much it might have been reduced by.  However, it is good to see a renewed focus on reducing food waste.  Finally, I am glad to see that the recycling service will be seeking to make better use of Brent libraries, which are a deeply under-appreciated communications tool.
