In his haste to claim credit for Elthorne ward winning Cllr Mahfouz’s recycling competition, Bakhai got the number wrong and had to correct himself. You have got to hit that delete button faster councillor. Full announcement here:


Five wards in Ealing walk away with big cash prizes for being the best and most improved recyclers.

Elthorne and Hobbayne are the joint winners for best recycling ward, splitting £20,000 for their communities after participation rates in both wards reached an impressive 72.7%.

South Acton takes the top spot for most improved recycling ward, bagging £20,000 to be spent on local improvements. Participation rates improved by 6.1% taking them up to a participation rate of 54.5% as they leap-frogged six places in the results table. Southfields and Northolt Mandeville wards also each pick up a £20,000 cash prize for improving their participation rates by 4.1%.

In addition, Acton Central, Cleveland, Greenford Green, Hanger Hill, Northolt West End, Norwood Green, Perivale and Walpole all improved their recycling participation rates.

The tonnage of waste sent for recycling increased compared with last year thanks to the recycling incentive competition, which was the first of its kind in London.

In the period the competition was running, an extra 370.32 tonnes –of kerbside recycling was collected. This is the equivalent to the weight of 370 classic minis. In total, 2607.72 less tonnes of waste were sent to landfill over the same time period, which equates to savings of
£231,148 in landfill tax. This is down to an increase in recycling and a reduction in the amount households are throwing away.

Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, cabinet member for Transport and Environment, said:
“A huge congratulations to all of the winning wards. This competition has shown that it is possible to improve recycling rates and a special mention must go to South Acton, which improved by such a staggering amount. Recycling is so important, not only for the environment but also to save the council money in landfill tax.

“Thank you to everyone who took up recycling and helped reduce the amount of rubbish sent to landfill. The money saved can be spent on providing valuable services across the borough. I urge all residents to continue taking advantage of the council’s excellent recycling services to recycle as much waste as possible.”

Seriously Phil it was a typo
and if it wasnt a joint tie it wouldve have been 20k.

Besides the whole recycling competition was a pointless exercise


In Southall Green which came bottom and in Southall Broadway and in Dormers Wells it certainly was pointless as these these three wards were at the bottomof the list. Lady Margaret ward did not do well either.

Shame on them. And Mr Singh why do the residents there have such poor standards and little care for community issues such as considering the benefits of recycling ?

If the ethnic majority in Southall want the residents of the whole Borough to support more attention and capital being spent on them by Ealing Council (and it may well be there is a case for this) then ther residents there have to do their bit as well. They didn’t as regards recycling.

Or Mr Singh have I missed something?


Well the point you raised clearly means you have missed something.

There was no clear posts sent to residents abotu the ward recycling scheme
heck there has been clear leaflets statign when to recycle and what to recycle

not forgetting this is a diverse area, a few leaflets translated woudl have helped

but wait, we have ward forums which can promote the recycling scheme..

again no, after attending the forums, no promotiosn was made to this scheme by any of the councilors

a poor show by Ealing council!
