This letter was recently printed in the Wimbledon GuardianMerton's Labour Council has dismantled yet another element of the borough's recycling process. With immediate effect, food waste liners will no longer be delivered to residents, although they will be available at libraries. Clearly food waste recycling will decline on top of the already falling recycling rates, just like when Labour started charging for green waste removal. That calamitous policy led to garden waste collection volumes reducing by 75%. The consequence of these anti-recycling policies is that more green and now food waste will end up in general landfill or be incinerated.
