Last week Bin Doctor’s Ali and Sarah got to go to Wembley – the iconic stadium in West London – to talk rubbish and see for themselves the great work that the Green Team at Wembley do.
“We were so excited to be invited to Wembley,” said Sarah Kersey, West London Co-ordinator for The Rubbish Diet, “they are really on-board with the recycling message.”
Wembley stadium aim to divert at least 85% of their rubbish to recycling – this is in stark contrast to the rest of West London, where most of the potential recycling ends up on the Waste Train heading straight for landfill.
In fact, two thirds of the Waste Train could have been recycled – that’s the equivalent of a train as long as the iconic arch at Wembley – just imagine all that wonderful resource being pulled back into the economy rather than sent to landfill – well, that’s our vision at least.
Luckily Sarah and Ali were on-site to help, one Bin Doctor’s Surgery at a time!
“We answered people’s questions about their household waste and had loads of sign-ups to the Rubbish Diet” said Bin Doctor Ali. The Waste Train campaign’s got hundreds more people in West London involved, but if you know anyone who needs a Bin Doctor, or haven’t yet tried our new quick and easy Diet – do get in touch and sign-up. It’s so easy to recycle just a little bit more and help do your bit to keep valuable stuff in the british economy, rather than in the dump.
Wembley also had a great new installation – two recycled lions – made my artist Faith Bebbington out of materials collected on-site. Recycled Art always makes us smile! What’s not to love?
