The rate of recycling across London councils are falling.
According to figures released by the Department for Food, Environment and Rural Affairs, 21 out of 32 boroughs have seen a drop in their household waste sent for reuse, recycling or composition from the previous year.
Bexley borough is the best at recycling such waste at a current rate of 54% but Lewisham is the worst at only 17%. However, both councils have seen a slight drop from the year before.
