A HOUSING estate in Fulham has one of the most improved recycling rates in the country.

The Clem Attlee Estate has adopted a series of green measures on a trial basis including recycling chutes and mini-recycling banks on each floor.

Today, figures reveal that after six months the estate has boosted participation in recycling to 98 per cent.

It is now hoped the scheme could be rolled out across the capital.

John Twitchen of Sauce, the environmental consultancy which ran the project, said: “Collecting recycled rubbish from high-rise blocks is difficult, so we wanted to try a few different ideas here, and see what works.

“We’ve been incredibly pleased with the results, and we are now very hopeful that this could form a blueprint for every high-rise block in London.”

This is a great idea for all the new high condominiums planned in the United States. Making it easy to recycle is the key.
