Preventing three billion a year ending up in landfill

The issue of nappies, and how to prevent nearly three billion a year ending up in landfill, or being burnt into the atmosphere was being discussed in East London today, as part of plans for a new government bill.

Part of the legislation would see local authorities roll out a voucher scheme for reusable products.

The idea has been tested in 9 boroughs in the capital, including Hackney.
