Wandsworth and Lambeth criticised over recycling rates

Two London councils have been accused of misleading residents over their recycling rates.

Recycling rates for Wandsworth and Lambeth councils had been about 28% but they claimed 46% of waste was recycled last year.

Green Party London Assembly Member Jenny Jones accused the boroughs of "cheating", as the councils had included waste sent for incineration, but both local authorities stand by their records.
