Improved door signs will be part of a new million-pound recycling scheme due to rollout in London.

Some £1.35 million will be split across 12 boroughs in the capital and the new scheme is forecast to ensure that 41,000 tonnes of waste do not go to landfill, the sustainability website reports.

The London Waste and Recycling Board (LWARB) possesses a budget of £73.4 million to inject into waste management across the next three years

Over 250,000 properties, some high-rise flats, will benefit from enhanced health and safety signage, reusable bags, easier to access bins, recycling facilities on floors, increased collections, and recycling bins in kitchens, the website explained.

The mayor of London, Boris Johnson, was quoted by the website as saying: "This funding is great news as it will provide practical, common sense ways to make recycling easier for people in London."

According to the Daily Mail, one London authority, Islington Council, could be set to issue penalty fines next year if residents recycle incorrectly.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800257597-ADNFCR
