Labour-run Redbridge has a poor record on Recycling, as this BBC article from 2020 makes clear.
A recycling rate of just 24.9% just isn't good enough. It's not surprising Redbridge ranks near the bottom for recycling, given kerbside collection in the borough is so limited. No plastic apart from bottles, no food waste, no drinks cartons.
Meanwhile Lib Dem councils elsewhere are leading the way. 4 out of 5 of the top councils for recycling are Lib Dem led.
