Westminster Council is one step closer to introducing food waste recycling, following lobbying by the Westminster Labour group.
The Council has announced it will be running pilots in several wards across the borough, including Churchill.
Westminster Council is one of a handful of London boroughs that currently do not provide a widely available scheme for food waste recycling.
At a Full Council meeting earlier this year, Councillor Pancho Lewis, Shadow Cabinet Member for Environment, pressed Councillor Tim Mitchell – who heads up Westminster’s Environment team – to introduce a scheme. And last month, at a Scrutiny Committee, Councillor Lewis again pressed Council officers again about the issue.
Despite initial resistance, the Council has now taken forward Labour’s suggestion.
Your Labour councillors will keep a close eye on these developments closely and continue to press the Council to make the City greener.
