Residents on board with #KeepRichmondClean

Release Date: 06 March 2018

The borough’s residents are getting on board with the Council’s #KeepRichmondClean campaign and urging others to recycle their household waste.

It comes as the Council wants to raise awareness and discourage the practice of flytipping and littering in Richmond upon Thames.

Richmond resident Indy said:

“We are very blessed to live in Richmond, which is one of the nicest boroughs in London.

“I’ve always been hugely passionate about recycling. It starts at home with keeping your home environment tidy and your garden tidy and it works its way into the community.

“If I can’t use something again I’ll rinse it out and put it into the right bin. I’m also a keen food recycler and use the green compost bins that Richmond provide and use the Townmead recycling centre.

“We are fortunate to have services like weekly recycling and refuse collection and we as residents need to be environmentally aware and play our part in keeping this borough as lovely as it is.”

Cllr Pamela Fleming, Cabinet Member for Environment, Business and Community said:

“It’s great to see our residents being proactive in protecting the environment and taking advantage of the services we offer to encourage more recycling.

“Everyone has a part to play in protecting the environment we are lucky enough to live in and I hope people follow Indy’s example by making their households more environmentally friendly!”
