Food Waste Bags - The Facts

Kingston Recycling
Kingston's recycling rate is the third best in the whole of London

Lib Dem publications have recently claimed that there has been a significant decline in food waste recycling rates, but this simply isn't true.

The Lib Dems have informed residents that:

 There has been a significant decline in the amount of food waste recycled...so there has been an increase in the amount of food waste going to landfill[1]

The facts are:

Kingston’s food waste recycling level has increased by 3.8% for 2016/17 when compared to 2015/16. That is an extra 157 tonnes of food waste recycled.[2] Moreover the facts also illustrate that the amount of waste going to landfill has decreased by 2.9% for 2016/17 compared to 2015/16, saving tax-payers money. Our recycling rates were so good that a report by BBC London News ranked Kingston as the third best Borough in London for recycling. Kingston Conservatives are committed to making Kingston a brighter and better borough, and improving our recycling rates is just one way of doing that.

The Lib Dems said that food waste recycling rates had fallen meaning more food waste was going to landfill. But the facts state that recycling rates for food waste have risen whilst landfill waste has reduced.
