"A council is set to introduce a compulsory recycling scheme next year, in a move which it said was the ‘next logical step’ in increasing recycling rates and diverting waste from landfill.
"At a meeting of Croydon council’s cabinet earlier this month (16 October) councillors approved the introduction of compulsory recycling from 1 January 2013, in a bid to save the council money by diverting waste from landfill, as well as engaging with residents who do not recycle.
"... At the meeting, the cabinet noted that the London borough of Barnet was the first council in the capital to introduce compulsory recycling, in 2005. Since its introduction, Barnet has only imposed one fine. A number of other councils have adopted a similar policy, including Brent, Islington and Lambeth."
