Whitechapel Market Gets Sorted

gourds.jpg A new recycling plan throughout Tower Hamlets is resulting in less rubbish at Whitechapel Market. The new scheme is allowing market traders to divide their waste into organic matter — think produce and the less tasty bits of animals — and dry recyclables such as plastics and cardboard. Rubbish is collected twice daily, and the massive bins used will be fitted with locks to prevent cross-contamination by well-meaning passersby. The new scheme projects that recycling will be increased in the Market by 88%. Well done, Tower Hamlets.

Meanwhile, the Farmers' Market in Marylebone is threatened to close. I've received this in an e-mail today: "Individuals can sign online at http://campaigns.libdems.org.u.... Alternatively, they can collect signatures using the printable petition sheet, which can be found at http://campaigns.libdems.org.u...".

It'd be great to hear more about what goes on there.
