No Room at the Bin

2502.tip.jpg Imagine if you were told that you simply couldn't throw anything else away... It would be kind of tough, no? Well, apparently London is nearly full up of rubbish. Landfill is becoming landfull. We are running out of room, and by 2013 will be in deep shit (possibly literally). The issue of recycling makes Londonist see red (well, green, actually), and the fact that London councils have been found variously guilty of sending waste overseas or simply chucking all the recycled stuff away together is unpardonable. AS we reported back in 2007, London Remade's Leave no Footprint initiative would seem to offer sound solutions. We can't really understand why this is such a hot issue still - it's not like new news, and the authorities have had plenty of warning. One thing London can't afford to do is to twiddle its thumbs.
