A London-wide campaign to improve recycling rates is urging Havering residents to have more than one bin in their homes.

The One Bin Is Rubbish campaign is asking residents to share their own unique recycling hacks with the rest of the capital.

A survey of 2,000 London residents found a lack of space in homes was the biggest challenge to consistent recycling.

More than 40pc of Havering residents said they would recycle more if they had more than one bin at home, while half have had a gutful of “bin-digestion” – piling up of recycling items around their rubbish bins due to lack of a separate bin or container for their recycling.

More than a fifth of Havering residents asked also admitted they would be embarrassed if others saw how messy their bins become.
