Prioritising recycling in Southwark


Southwark Council

Southwark Council has worked with Veolia to build a combined recycling centre and waste management facility, resulting in the borough having the best recycling rates in Inner London. Less than 2% of waste produced in Southwark ends up in landfill: the rest is either recycled into something new or is used as fuel to produce electricity and heat for 3,000 council homes.

The LGA Labour Group exists to fight the corner for Labour councillors at a national level, both within
the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
