Case study – the London Borough of Camden

Camden is a borough in north London with a population of 228,000 living

in 92,000 households. In 2004, the council was collecting 85,000 tonnes of

household waste each year. The proportions of the different types of waste

are shown in Figure 8.

The council developed a waste strategy in 2006 with some very specifi c

targets to be achieved by 2010, including 35% of household waste to be

recycled. This was to be achieved by:

Increasing participation in household recycling to 60%

Increasing the amount of recycling collected from housing estates by 10%

Increasing the amount of recycling collected from schools by 10%

Recycling 70% of rubbish brought to the Regis
