London council urges ‘Green Pledge’

A London council is urging private sector landlords with properties in their patch to sign a pledge urging their tenants to recycle as part of its bid to reach Net Zero targets.

A lengthy statement to landlords from Conservative controlled Wandsworth council includes the plea: “We ask you to help make sure that new tenants know how to dispose of their household waste and recycling responsibly. It’s also important that residents do the right thing with their waste during their tenancy, as well as importantly when they move out.”

Wandsworth says that by signing, landlords agree to ensure that tenants are aware of their responsibilities to dispose of their waste and recycling correctly. And any letting agents that sign agree to ensure that landlords they work with are aware of their responsibilities.

The wording of the pledge is very long and detailed – we reproduce most of it below:
