Better Bankside is delighted to have been awarded funding from Transport for London to deliver an innovative waste micro-consolidation scheme in 2018. The initiative also forms part of our wider commitment to deliver air quality projects in Bankside.
Better Bankside’s Maintenance Team, in partnership with First Mile Recycling, will collect the rubbish from businesses using our zero emissions vehicle and transport the waste to Borough Market’s compactor. There will be no changes to the waste collection service and participating businesses are expected to put out their waste in the usual way. Switching to a zero emissions vehicle will have significant impact on the number of trips to and from Bankside by diesel waste vehicles and improve local air quality.
We've had a fantastic response from local businesses and have already met our quota of signing up 11 organisations, however it's still not too late to get involved.
If you'd like to find out more about the waste micro-consolidation scheme and how your business can help us to improve air quality in the neighbourhood, please contact Maria Curro at MC [at] betterbankside.co.uk.
