Recycle Week’s annual campaign, organised by WRAP, will be running from Monday 24th to Sunday 30th September. This year marks the campaign's 15th year, and is set to be one to remember. Themed ‘Recycling. We do. Because it matters’, the campaign will be focusing on plastics, aiming to highlight the benefits of recycling and encourage people to recycle more. WRAP is calling on all organisations, businesses and individuals to get involved during the week. It’s a perfect opportunity for all our LGP residents to get on board and ramp up their recycling.

After a baking hot few weeks, London’s green spaces haven’t been looking so green. With low levels of rainfall and the longest summer heatwave since 1976, gardens are looking scorched!
Yesterday, we heard concerns from the National Audit Office that a significant amount of items recycled in the UK could in fact end up in landfill abroad.
It’s summer and it’s definitely hot out there – which means lots of us will be sipping ice cold drinks through plastic straws, grabbing plastic bottles of cold water on the go and picking up disposable cutlery or items packaged in plastic for picnics outside.
Summer is well and truly here, and we’ve had a very busy spring period with lots of exciting moments for our Local Green Points recycling rewards schemes. Keep reading to find out what the team has been up to:
