Hi all, just wanted to update you on this. I sent my article to the developers and asked for them to place a bottle bank in E20. I got this back from Laura at East Thames
We’re delighted to hear that you love living on the East Village and I agree that’s it’s a shame there are no glass recycling facilities for residents. As you know Newham Council are responsible for recycling facilities but I have forwarded your email to the various partners on East Village to ask if this is something we can all achieve together.
I hope the outcome is positive as I’m a keen recycler myself and dread the thought of all that glass going to the landfill. I’m sure you’re aware, but just in case, it’s good to know that the closest bottle bank to EV is located on Major Road, near the M bus stop.
It's kind of positive and I plan to email her in a few weeks to find out if there's been any progress
If any of you want to email her too, she's on Laura.Hally@east-thames.co.uk
