Quotes

"Epping Forest has long been a key development target for Biffa for a number of reasons. These primarily are the council’s desire to push the boundaries of recycling, and Biffa’s local property and facilities that will enable us to provide a great value-for-money service. I am confident this will be a long and fruitful partnership."
"It remains easier and more effective to recycle glass back into glass bottles and jars when glass is collected separately from other packaging materials."
"We want residents in these five boroughs to really get involved in the re-use revolution through this campaign."
"The road would have been very busy at the time of the collision and I believe that a number of people would have seen the incident."
