We have successfully secured £120k from WCC’s CIL fund to further our work in tackling the unacceptably high levels of pollution in London and to increase recycling rates.
The funding will enable us to develop the waste consolidation pilot project carried out at 30 Panton Street, to help reduce vehicle movements, congestion and improve air quality. More information about the pilot Panton Street project can be found here.
Building on the successful pilot, the expansion will enable us to roll out the approach to five multiple occupier buildings in the Heart of London area.
The predicted outcomes of the project’s expansion will include:
- Less vehicles on the roads due to the consolidation of contractors, resulting in improved air quality
- Reduction of vehicle journeys due to compacted waste volume
- Increase in recycling rates through improved bin weighting, more streamlined processes and education
- Cost savings to participating businesses through use of the preferred supplier scheme
We are currently in the process of considering additional sites within the Heart of London area for the project’s expansion and if selected, funding will be available for participating businesses. Interested property owners are encouraged to contact Christina Wells firstname.lastname@example.org
Heart of London is committed to tackling the high levels of pollution in London and we will continue to work with business to help improve air quality.
