Over 185 halls of residence in London have been visited by recycling experts and tailor made recycling plan have been put in place, as part of a campaign started by London mayor Ken Livingstone and the voluntary organisation CRISP, which hopes to encourage students to recycle more by making facilities more accessible. The experts who visited the student halls found that 48 per cent did not have any recycling facilities. Although the remainder had some facilities, these were often limited and under used. Since the project began in 2005 it has worked in partnership with Local Authorities and halls’ managers, delivering over 200 external recycling bins. By the end of March this year over 6,600 halls kitchens will receive internal recycling bins; making it even easier for them to live in a more sustainable way.Victoria Hands of CRISP, an organisation which promotes the benefits of sustainable development said: Students are tomorrow’s decision makers and leaders and they are key to a sustainable future. The Mayor is giving them they need to make more sustainable lifestyle choices and empowering them to live in an environmentally and socially responsible way.’
